Description

"Chicago00 The Eastland Disaster" is an Augmented Reality experience that takes place along the Chicago riverwalk between Clark and LaSalle Streets: the site of one of the largest nautical disasters in U.S. history, the capsizing of the SS Eastland in 1915.

The app provides an AR Tour, specifically designed to be used along Chicago’s riverwalk, and a VR Gallery of images that can be viewed anywhere. Together they reveal the story of the disaster in a new and visceral way.

The Chicago00 Project is a partnership between the Chicago History Museum and Geoffrey Alan Rhodes to produce and publish a series of site-specific, multimedia experiences that showcase the Museum's film, photo, and sound archive. This episode features over 70 captioned historical photographs and newsreel films showing the disaster and ensuing relief efforts on the river where the Eastland capsized in 1915.
