The plans were prepared in May 1893 to accommodate "local passenger transportation" to the World's Columbian Exposition. Architects Dankmar Adler (1844-1900) and Louis Sullivan (1856-1924) gained prominence through their joint firm, Adler & Sullivan, during the 1880s and early 1890s. Adler emigrated with his family from Germany in 1854, and Sullivan was born in Boston, the son of two immigrant parents. Sullivan is known as the "father of modernism" and mentored Frank Lloyd Wright. After beginning their careers separately, in 1880 Sullivan became a partner in Adler's firm, beginning a productive period for each architect. The digitized content contains twelve drawings signed by Adler and Sullivan, Architects, and by E. T. Jeffrey, General Manager. Only item 12 lacks any signatures, and 7 and 9 lack Jeffrey’s name. The drawings feature floor plans and construction for the Oakland, or 39th St., Passenger Station and surrounding area.

    Description
    The Map Library maintains a comprehensive collection of over 190,000 aerial photographs for all Illinois counties, with the earliest photographs from the late 1930s and the most recent from 2005.

Most of the photographs are products of the United States Department of Agriculture or the United States Geological Survey in cooperation with state agencies. Beginning in fall 2018, the University Library is scanning the indexes to all of the aerial photography sets in alphabetical order by county name. Library users, especially those at a distance from Champaign-Urbana, are encouraged to use the scanned indexes to identify needed photographs and to request photographs through the web-based request form [https://forms.illinois.edu/sec/1947069]. The link to the form appears on each index sheet’s webpage. Once photographs have been retrieved from our files, the Map Library will contact requesters regarding in-library use or scanning.

  • Aerial Stereograms
    Map and Geography Library  ·   Digital Special Collections
    Description
    The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Committee on Aerial Photography began to prepare a set of aerial stereogram photographs to support instruction in aerial photography interpretation in 1959. The stereograms were created primarily from United States government photography. Source image dates range between 1936 and 1970. A stereogram is usually a “3D” picture hidden within a picture; they often appear in Sunday newspaper comic strip supplements. Aerial stereograms are created from pairs of aerial photographs that show the same location but from slightly different angles. By viewing the photo pairs through a stereoscope, the brain can be tricked into seeing or perceiving an impression of heights and depths. The aerial stereograms in the Committee on Aerial Photography collection show a wide variety of features, both natural and man-made, throughout the United States. Brief descriptions of each stereogram are available in a separately-published catalog, “University of Illinois Catalog of Stereogram Aerial Photographs.” The catalog is included in the scanned collection. Instructors are encouraged to download and print the images for classroom or laboratory instructional use. Please contact the Map Library with questions regarding reproduction for publication via e-mail (http://www.library.illinois.edu/mailform/mail.php?emailcode=mapandgeog) or by calling 217-333-0827.
