Chicago Tribune, 1970s and 1980s
The Chicago Tribune newsroom, located on the fourth floor of its iconic building on Michigan Avenue, was a huge, cavernous area when I joined the paper in 1972. Today the newsroom is a little less open. Gathered for the Newsroom History project are images from the late 1970s and 1980s.
