Short film about Chicago, in 1947 - just discovered

A 30 minute short film about Chicago that was shot around 1947 has been making the rounds big-time in the last week or so. Someone found a print of it at an estate sale and it wasn't previously known before. It was produced by the Chicago Board of Education (who today doesn't seem to know anything about it) for some purpose unknown, but appears to be a promotional type film designed to sell the city.

While this is not the purpose of the blog, It’s very interesting to see Chicago during that era.
