Wendella Boat Tours

The search for modern architecture was opened by the Chicago Fire of 1871, which Henry Hobson Richardson, took advantage of. Most of his work showed a massive Neo-Romanesque Style, echoing in Marshall Field Wholesale Store. The huge structure filled a city block. Reminisent of the Italian Early Renaissance palaces, this against the modern skyscrapers gives a tension that is stunning. The guide gives a brief synopsis of the history and styles of each building as you glide by. It is fascinating. See these huge facades up close and personal.
