- Nach http://www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/parks/clarence-f-buckingham-memorial-fountain/ wurde der Brunnen von Kate Buckingham gespendet zu Ehren ihres verstorbenen Bruders Clarence F. Buckingham, so auch der offizielle Name. - Außerdem sind die Seepferdchen nicht von Lambert, sondern von Marcel Loyau. "Architect Edward H. Bennett of the firm Bennett, Parsons and Frost, designed the fountain and French artist Marcel Loyau produced the sculptural elements. Architects Jacques Lambert and Clarence W. Farrier served as associates on the project. The fountain is composed of pink Georgia marble, with some granite elements, and bronze sculptures." - Der Beginn der Route 66 wird irrtümlich hier angenommen, liegt aber gemäß http://www.historic66.com/illinois/det-il1.php hier: "The start of Route 66 has moved a few times. Originally, Route 66 began on Jackson Blvd. at Michigan Ave. In 1933, the start (and end) was moved east onto the reclaimed land for the world fair to Jackson and Lake Shore Drive. In 1955, Jackson Blvd became one way west of Michigan Ave. and Adams St. became the westbound US-66. However the start of US-66 remained on Jackson at Lake Shore Drive.
So, even while currently Adams Street at Michigan Avenue is marked as the starting point, Route 66 never departed from there.
The ending point is easier: post 1933 at Jackson Blvd. and Lake Shore Drive; prior to 1933 it was at the intersection of Jackson Blvd and Michigan Ave. (which is marked as the terminus)."
