In 1914 construction began on 1 of 5 proposed Chicago Municipal Piers, which turned out to be the only one built. It was to be for many public uses but World War I put on the kibosh. From 1917-1918 the pier was requisitioned for Navy, Army, and Red Cross personnel. After the war, the pier, now called the Navy Pier, became a hub of Windy City activity. More than 3 million people visited annually through the roaring 20’s. The World’s Fair brought a steady flow through the 30’s. Then war came again. The U.S. Navy utilized the Pier through WWII, it is Navy Pier after all. The University of Chicago took over from 1946 – 65 but then it saw little use for a decade. In 1976 exhibition halls and events started the resuscitation and after renovations in the early 1990’s the Navy Pier again became a major Chi-town attraction. Today it is home of the 150 foot Navy Pier Ferris Wheel and Pier Park, Museums, exhibition halls, vendors, shops, sightseeing cruises, and tall ships. Eric’s painting, looking in from Lake Michigan, captures the beautiful cityscape as backdrop for the historic, wonderful Navy Pier.

Legend Wrong

Living near Chicago for many years, I was excited to be able to do this puzzle. When I began looking at the legend, I noticed that many things were very incorrect. It’s a shame. Love the artwork, though.

Wrong legend

I found the same thing that my legend of my 1000 piece puzzle was totally wrong. Very frustrating. It’s a beautiful puzzle but I would like an accurate description.

Beautiful Puzzle

This is one on my favorite Dowdle puzzles, it wasn't easy by any means but it was a wonderful was to explore Chicago's Navy Pier. His cityscape, taken from the waterside, is lovely and interesting without distracting from doing the puzzle. This one is a keeper!

such a pleasing + detailed puzzle

As usual another pretty image. Very detailed jigsaw so it’s easy to piece along. I’m a fan. I will definitely reach for this puzzle again. Hopefully I’ll receive more 🤞And yup this is another xmas gift from my usual amazon puzzle list - convenient for fam+pals to look over whenever 😁Very little puzzle dust (only sharing for curious folks).No missing pieces. A poster was included which was helpful.Pic provided ✌️
