The Abandoned Old Chicago Post Office

This haunting image reveals the poignant juxtaposition between the neglected grandeur of the Old Chicago Post Office and the city’s thriving downtown just beyond its grimy windows. Inside, time-worn floors and peeling paint echo an era of fervent activity, their deterioration strangely beautiful against the backdrop of soaring modern skyscrapers.
