New on the blog: As keepers of Chicago history, we’re pleased to announce a new Chicago @Cubs installation! Senior curator Olivia Mahoney introduces prized items from the 2016 #WorldSeries—including a jersey worn by @BenZobrist18 and a baseball hit by @kris_bryant17—and reflects on being a lifelong Cubs fan.

As part of the @chicagoarchitecturebiennial, CHM VP for Interpretation & Education John Russick talks about our newest #VR and #AR app, Chicago 00: Century of Progress, on 9/16 at the Chicago Cultural Center. Combining historical images from our photography and film archives with contemporary 360-degree site photography, audiences are immersed in virtual and #augmentedreality experiences of the 1933 world’s fair.

#OnThisDay in 1997, the @CMEGroup began trading e-mini futures contracts on the #SP500, which quickly became the most popular equity index #futurescontract in the world. This allowed for more participation in the stock index futures markets because it traded at 1/5 the size of the full-sized contract, making it more affordable to individual investors and traders. #FinancialHistory

CHM senior collection manager @bkarendt talked to @TimeOutChicago about our Decorative and Industrial Arts (DIA) collection—which contains more than 40,000 artifacts, but is just a fraction of our holdings.

Ever wonder why you always seem to get caught at a #trafficlight?🚦Chicago’s been using #traffic signal controllers since the 1920s, and we have one of the first. Go inside the collection with senior collection manager @BKArendt and explore one of the city’s first traffic signal controllers. youtube.com/ChicagoHistoryMuseum
