Flashback Friday: Water Tower Place Under Construction

Water Tower Place under construction as seen on the Bob Newhart Show

Wandering around the vast, dark interwebs the other day I came across this image.  It’s a still frame taken from the opening sequence of season four of the Bob Newhart Show.  You can see the construction fencing is still up around Water Tower Place (845 North Michigan Avenue), and what is now Macy’s is still marked with a big “Marshall Field & Company” logo.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, the Bob Newhart show runs Wednesday nights at 9:00pm on WWME-LD 23 and WCIU-TV 26.3.
