Magnificent colors are the main feature in this souvenir folder of Chicago Parks Beautiful. The American Colortype Co. made the prints expressly for the Max Rigot Selling Agency in 1936. There are 18 scenes in all. Scenes of particular beauty are the Lincoln Park Conservatory inside and outside, the Japanese Garden of Jackson Park, and the Night View of the Buckingham Fountain showing the Chicago skyline as well. The folder has been addressed and postmarked in 1938. Two one- cent stamps are attached. There is one word written inside. The folder has soft corners, but the scenes inside are in very good shape.
