Chicago will be the greatest city in the US



Kate Field : journalist
The March 25, 1893 Newark Daily Advocate (Newark, OH) featured four journalists who made predictions of what the world of 1993 would look like. Kate Field wrote: 'Where will be our greatest city? In all probability Chicago. There will be wonderful cities in the west, none more beautiful and extensive than Salt Lake City; but unless all signs fail Chicago will take precedence.'
