The Other Side of the Museum of Science and Industry
The Museum of Science and Industry has been a Chicago Institution for quite some time. During the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, it was The Palace of Fine Arts, and during the Century of Progress Exposition, it opened under its current name.

The grounds just south of the museum (where I took this picture) are a part of Jackson Park's Osaka Japanese Garden, which, like the museum itself, was a part of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition Ho-o-Den (Phoenix "Temple") complex. Through the years, the garden has had many rebirths. Its serenity and constancy provide to the Hyde Park community a respite from the demands of urban living.
