Caption: "[Engraved for The Standard Guide Company.] Libby Prison Museum, Wabash Ave., South. [See "Amusements."]". From text: "Located on Wabash avenue, between Fourteenth and Sixteenth streets. One of the principal permanent attractions of the city. The original Libby prison (transported from Richmond, Va., and put up, brick after brick, just as it stood during the War of the Rebellion, when used as a prison for Union soldiers) is enclosed within massive walls, built after the manner of the middle ages.
