Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - NEWS -

When we started the @VintageTribune In­sta­gram ac­count in 2014, we had no idea how big the re­sponse would be. Robin Daugh­tridge, for­mer as­so­ciate manag­ing ed­i­tor for pho­tog­ra­phy, and my­self would often share “found” pho­tos while search­ing through the Tri­bune’s ar­chives look­ing for his­toric im­ages. These “one-offs” — pho­to­graphs that were in­trigu­ing, shock­ing or just plain fun — be­came a bit of an ob­ses­sion, and the In­sta­gram ac­count was born as an out­let for us to share them with you. The re­sponse was over­whelm­ing. Since our first post July 1, 2014, we’ve shared more than 5,000 pho­tos and grown to know many of you in our “In­sta” com­mu­nity — more than 83,000 fans. You’ve found grand­par­ents, par­ents and even your­selves in our pho­tos. Now, we’re bring­ing these im­ages back to print, once again, with a col­lec­tion of 300 of our — and your — fa­vorites. “Vin­tage Chicago: The Best of @vintagetribune on In­sta­gram” is a por­trait of a city and its peo­ple, told through the lenses of count­less pho­tog­ra­phers from the city’s home­town pa­per. Each frame is a story, a trip back in time. We hope you en­joy the trip as much as we have.
