My husband and I recently stayed at the Drake in Chicago. Unless the Drake has moved, I do not think the building in the background can be the Drake. If one is looking toward downtown Chicago on Michigan Ave., which the background suggests, then the buildings are on the incorrect side of Michigan Ave. If one is looking north along Michigan Ave., then the background should not be skyscrapers, but Lake Michigan and Oak Street Beach.

As I'm not from Chicago, I do not know the history of the area from the Drake northward; what is now Oak Street Beach may once have been developed.
