Vintage forgery organization group photo at the Congress Hotel, Chicago, July 1930.
Who are these guys? G-men? T-men? FBI? And who has heard of a National Convention, Forgery Organization? Many questions, no answers. I do know that this is an unusual piece of history. It is in the original frame. Measuring 20 & 1/2" by 13".
In good condition, there seems to be something on the inside of the glass around the edges, it would probably clean up with a re-framing, but it is not a major issue. Please excuse any reflections in the glass.
I think that is the ballroom of the Congress Hotel with the fancy chandeliers and stained glass windows and it looks like that. A wonderful piece of Chicago history.
