About This Design
Chicago's Navy Pier Vintage Lumbar Pillow
Vintage hand colored picture of Chicago's famous Navy Pier from an authentic post card from the early 1900s. Built in 1916, Navy Pier (Municipal Pier #2) has had a number of uses from a commericial pier with entertainment, a Naval training center, college classrooms, and a public gathering place. Today it is Chicago's most popular tourist attraction and has such attractions as the Ferris Wheel at Pier Park, carnival rides, and a miniature golf course. The Pier's "Golden Age" was the 1920s when passenger excursion ships from all over the Great Lakes brought tourists to visit the Windy City. In 1933, the Century of Progress Exposition (World's Fair) on the lakefront also drew many conventions and visitors to the Pier. During the 1930s, the Pier also housed various New Deal agencies. During the 1940s, the pier was closed to the public and six days before the attack on Pearl Harbor (7 Dec. 1941), classes began for aviation machinist mates, metalsmiths, and diesel mechanics. The Navy's air group training arm docked a pair of converted flattops at the Pier, the USS Wolverine and the USS Sable (IX-81), to use as freshwater training carriers. During the war, about 15,000 pilots, including future President George H. W. Bush, received carrier-landing training. The Navy Pier was home to two famous passenger excursion ships from the Great Lakes. The Wolverine—a side-wheel excursion steamer built in 1913—was originally named Seeandbee, a name based upon her owners' company name, the Cleveland and Buffalo Transit Co. The USS Sable (IX-81) was a training ship during World War II.Originally built as the Greater Buffalo, a sidewheel excursion steamer, she was converted in 1942 to a freshwater aircraft carrier to be used on the Great Lakes.
