|Houseboat on the Chicago River at LaSalle Street, 1952
While the colony of houseboats along the north branch of the Chicago River was a semi-permanent fixture in the mid-twentieth century, other houseboats could be seen on the river which were clearly designed to move from one place to another. Seen here is a houseboat at north La Salle Street along the Chicago River in 1952.
