Lincoln Park--1912 or 2011?
|"Lua" at Hull House|
We filmed at Hull House, Lincoln Park, a church in Hyde Park, the grave of Corinne True and family, the Baha'i House of Worship, and a grassy area next to Lake Michigan.
One thing that happened is that we (actually Laurie Eley, seamstress extraordinaire) had made a Lua costume, and "Lua" showed up, in the form of our long-time friend, Becky Jones now Hillman. She was quite convincing as "Lua"--and since Lua had been in a number of the Chicago photos, it was fun to have her appear there.

We also had great technical help--Craig Rothman, Charles and Majid Nolley, Colin Hill--as well as Richard Hillman, Becky's husband.

|What a great crew!|
At the end of the shoot we gathered to look at some of the footage and someone began singing, "Look at Me, Follow Me." It struck me then that we were already commemorating the visit of 'Abdu'l-Bahá befittingly--by gathering in a small group and remembering His time there. It was a potent realization!
