Norris, F. (n.d.). The Pit : A Story of Chicago. Retrieved from

Excerpt: I At eight o?clock in the inner vestibule of the Auditorium Theatre by the window of the box office, Laura Dearborn, her younger sister Page, and their aunt Aunt Wess? were still waiting for the rest of the theatre?party to appear. A great, slow?moving press of men and women in evening dress filled the vestibule from one wall to another. A confused murmur of talk and the shuffling of many feet arose on all sides, while from time to time, when the outside and inside doors of the entrance chanced to be open simultaneously, a sudden draught of air gushed in, damp, glacial, and edged with the penetrating keenness of a Chicago evening at the end of February.
