This is a c. 1930s aquatint engraving of a Raoul Varin piece originally published in 1927, and subsequently acquired and reprinted to be published by Sidney Lucas of the Paris Etching Society. It is entitled "N. W. Corner of Dearborn and Monroe Streets, Chicago" and subtitled "Showing the Post Office, 1865." It is a lively, energy-filled scene of 19th century Chicago city life, depicting horse drawn carriages, people strolling down the street, and storefronts going about their daily business.

This piece would be an excellent addition to any collection, especially for a Chicago native. It displays quite nicely and is in good vintage condition with age-appropriate wear. There is some foxing, fading, and soiling underneath the glass, which likely happened during storage or reframing of this piece. The print itself is in good vintage condition with minor creasing and wear consistent with age.

It measures 21 1/4 inches wide and 27 1/4 inches long.
