GeoVerse®077: Cloud Gate

If you were standing here between 1878 and 1884 you would see Lakefront Park just a few feet to the north which was home to the Chicago Cubs (then called the White Stockings). Lakefront Park was just as historic more than 100 years ago as Wrigley Field is today. Lakefront Park was the first modern ballpark in the world that was the first to have both luxury suites and the use of a new invention to help manage the team: a telephone.
