Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since it first grew up along the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago blossomed into a vibrant, progressive city with a landscape unlike any other. See how much the Midwests cultural center has changed — and how much its stayed the same — in Chicago Then & Now.
  • Unstoppably prosperous in the mid-1800s, Chicago was laid to waste by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The remarkable period following the fire gave rise to some of the worlds greatest architects and engineers — in fact, Chicago was rebuilt within two years and was soon known as the “world capital of modern architecture.”

  • Birthplace of the Soaring Chicago School and Frank Lloyd Wrights Prairie School of architecture, Chicago is a treasure trove of amazing buildings.

  • Explore some of Chicagos best-loved landmarks like Wrigley Field, Washington Park, Sears Tower, John Hancock Building, and St. Patricks, the citys oldest church and survivor of the Great Fire, with intriguing archival images paired alongside modern photos.

  • Whether youre just blowing through the Windy City, or happen to be a lucky resident of the area, youll find lots of satisfying material in this convenient, take-along edition.

Synopsis:

Every important building, avenue, neighborhood, and point of interest is documented in this edition, including Chicago's landmarks from Navy Pier to the Stockyards and from the Southside all the way up the Magnificent Mile.

Synopsis:

Celebrating America's favorite cityscapes, this series combines historic interest and contemporary beauty. Then and Now features fascinating archival photographs contrasted with specially commissioned, full-color images of the same scene today. A visual lesson in the historic changes of our greatest urban landscapes.
