    As a young boy, I was saddened at the destruction of most of Fort Custer in order to make way for an industrial park. I remember the barracks were opened for people to salvage wood or whatever they could from the simple buildings.

    Kaufmann & Fabry, Chicago photographers, would later become the official photographers of the Chicago’s World’s Fair "A Century of Progress International Exposition Chicago 1933-1934"

    There they would popularize the use of large photographic prints for the exhibition halls.

    I wonder what the kite mechanism was … a second string running up which could be pulled to release the shutter?
