CHICAGO -- We think we know a lot about Chicago -- until we realize how much we might have forgotten.

A new exhibit opened Saturday at the Chicago History Museum that put a new look on some old objects.

It’s a look back on everything “things”: telephone booths, glasses, tables -- all of them with a story to tell.

The exhibit is appropriately called “The Secret Lives of Objects.”

It features many stories, helped along by vignettes done by manual cinema -- things from Chicago’s often colorful and sometimes tragic past.
