    That's the one! They'll have pretty much everything you need. They don't necessarily have absolutely every film, but they'll help you.

    David,
    You might want to consider a guided boat ride on the Chicago River. You'll learn quite a bit about Chicago's history and see some really nice architecture. I live in the Chicago area, please IM me if I can help with any particulars.

    There's also Helix. Used to be a major player & is now downsizing. Their main store is at 310 S. Racine. On the corner of Racine & Jackson. 1 block N. of the EL stop at Racine.
    They did have saturday hours & a decent darkroom dept. It's been a while since I've been there so you may want to check their hours.
    It's Also just a couple of blocks W. of Greektown, You could have a nice lunch & pay them a visit.

    It was Friedlander! This was one block from where my meeting was, so I saw the exhibit with no problem.

    Visited Central Camera. They still have a lot of analog stuff. Film, paper, chemistry. There is nothing like them in Dallas.

    Did the Art Institute, although the Chagall windows were down and there was no photography up last week. All the other signature pieces were there.

    Didn't see Frank Lloyd Wright's own house in Oak Park, but did tour the Robie House in Hyde Park (near the Museum of Science and the U. of Chicago).

    Didn't get a cheeborger, but did have a brat. Also ate at the Berghoff, and Harry Carey's!!

    Great trip in spite of lousy weather. Thanks for all the suggestions!

    Cheers y'all.

    Never mind the cheeborger, you gotta have a Vienna Red Hot (dog) or three. With everything, of course.
