Chicago Municipal Airport

In 1926 the city leased the airport and named it Chicago Municipal Airport on December 12, 1927. By 1928, the airport had twelve hangars and four runways, lit for night operations.

In July 1949 the airport was renamed Chicago Midway after the Battle of Midway...If I'm not mistaken, the aircraft is a Douglas DC-3.
