Date Produced
A “city symphony” film, produced to encourage Photographic Society of America members to attend their 1963 conference in Chicago. City to See combines footage of Chicago with a deadpan commentary that pokes fun at commercial travel films: “Chicago is my town,” the narrator says wryly, “and no other town will do.” Conneely was awarded a special prize by the Photographic Society of America for this film. Preserved by Chicago Film Archives with support from the Women’s Film Preservation Fund.

The film captures important Chicago landmarks such as the Buckingham Fountain, the Art Institute, Garfield Park, Robie House, White Sox Park, Harbor McCormick Place, the Board of Trade at LaSalle Street, Soldiers Field and Wrigley Field, amongst other historically significant locations.
