This black and white photo depicts an event taking place in a large ballroom. There is a large crowd of people sitting at round tables with white tablecloths and dining ware. The men are in suits and tuxedos while the women are in dresses and jewelry. Along the left hand side is a long table that stretches to the back with important people sitting. On the wall on the left hand side above the long table are five large American flag banners. They are above arched windows. The ceiling is rounded with a lot of decoration and chandeliers.
This is a photo of the Banquet tendered to Hon. Robert E. Crowe by the Greek American Republicans of Cook County at Hotel LaSalle in Chicago on March 15, 1924.
Photo donated by Marilyn G. Tzakis from her great-uncle Dennis Tzakis. Dennis Tzakis lived at the New Jackson Hotel in Greektown and was Marilyn's father's uncle.
