Can you help me or steer me to someone who can help me find out about my Tobey ladies rocking chair and would like to know more about it. The date is marked, 1913 with a 4 over the 3. Then 724 1/2 is also a marking. The Tobey placard is round and raised. The chair has never been refinished but the seat covering replaced. Alway been in my family. The chair was considered more of an art piece and rarely sat in.

Thank you for your web site! It was very helpful learning more about the Old Board of Trade building.
I just have one question. Was there a hotel called the Board of Trade Hotel back on the early 1920’s?
An article in the Chicago Daily Tribune from 1921 refers to that name. My grandfather was found dead in his room.
Thank you in advance for your time.

In July of 1865, would people traveling from Chicago to Omaha have traveled by the Chcago & North Western Railway? Was it considered then (or ever) to be owned by the Union Pacific, or not? Did the Chicago & North Western Railway have Pullman sleeping cars in 1865? How fast would it have taken, say, two Pinkerton agents who booked a Pullman sleeping car owned by the Chicago & north Western to have gone from Chicago to Omaha?
