Marielle Ravosa---Chicago In Regards to Nature's Metropolis

After reading Cronon's Nature's Metropolis, I was curious to see what Chicago looked like during an ordinary work day. Here are some fascinating images that I found in my search:
Here is a crowded stockyard where animals were kept.

The people above are immigrants arriving to Chicago in hope of finding work.
Here is a bustling market.
Here you see loads of timber being transported into Chicago.
