This 1934 short was directed by labor organizer Conrad Friberg (aka C.O. Nelson) under the banner of the Chicago Workers’ Film & Photo League. His class consciousness is manifest throughout this tour of the north-south thoroughfare from 127th Street, where Black farmers work the land with horse-drawn plows, to where Halsted turns into Clarendon Avenue in Lakeview and carefree white equestrians gambol in Lincoln Park. Between these two points one ethnically defined neighborhood after another flies by, with pauses for pointed social commentary, such as the shot of a destitute old woman in an alley, followed by a cut to a movie marquee advertising A Lost Lady.
