Automobiles drive past the Chicago Coliseum as it hosts an American Road Builders convention in this 1927 photo. The Coliseum, several times voted the "Ugliest Building in Chicago," was the site of all Republican conventions from 1904 to 1920, plus Teddy Roosevelt's 1912 Bull Moose convention. The last political event hosted at the site was the 1969 Students for Democratic Society convention. The Coliseum was condemned in 1971 and demolished in 1982.
