After last week’s failed attempt to do the full Wednesday Rookery Tour, I had a chance to visit again this week. Luckily the tour took place and I managed to get a few images. Although the main purpose in doing the tour was to see the library for my The White City series, of course I couldn’t pass up more lobby and stairway pictures. After all, I think the Rookery’s Oriole Staircase just might be one of the most beautiful ever designed and built.
These are all in color but you can see the black and white as well as a few other images from the day and past visits in this set here.
