Classic Chicago in the Summer

Summer heats up in the city

Last year around this time, we told you where you can find places around the city to cool off by taking a dive into a pool. And as summer starts to heat up again, you’re still going to want to hit those pools and probably any of the city beaches now that the lake has risen to some of its highest levels in years. However you cool off, it’s something Chicagoans have found creative ways to do for years. Check out the above gallery to see some fun summertime shots found at local history site Calumet412.com.
