Chicago

Canton Tea Garden, Chicago, Illinois, interiors, postcard front.
Chicago Northwestern Passenger Terminal Tea Room, Chicago, Illinois, postcard front, mailed in 1915. Despite the overall easily-cleaned tile surfaces of this railway depot tea room, some attention has been given to the Prairie School Craftsman aesthetic, with potted plants and fresh flowers at every table. Note also that the tables and tall-backed chairs are identical to those in the very posh Marshall Field's Department Store Tea Room, also in Chicago, and also on this gallery page.
