Vintage Chicago Postcard

Okay, another vintage Chicago postcard that my scanner didn't want to include the border of. This one is also unsent. John G. Shedd Aquarium.

Copy from the back:

"In Grant Park at the lake front. An octagonal building of Georgia marble. Donated by John G. Shedd at a cost of $3,000,000. Exhibits ten thousand fresh and salt water fishes and other aquatic animals from all over the world. It is the largest and most modern aquarium in the world.?"

And still a fun place to visit. Allie, Celeste & I, along with my parents, visited the Shedd a few years ago. Fish are good.
