Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chicago has changed greatly over time, but it has always been a place of innovation and excitement. In this completely revised and updated, compact edition of Chicago Then and Now, readers can breeze through the Windy City as they look at fascinating, detailed photos from throughout the citys history and read about the landmarks, parks, and people whove made it what it is today. From legendary hotels to architectural masterpieces to the bustling riverfront, Chicago Then and Now offers an innovative view of this beloved city.

When it was built in 1897, the ‘L, Chicagos elevated railroad, revolutionized commuting. Today, it has been joined by miles of underground subway and is a crucial part of daily life. For more than 150 years, Marshall Field was Chicagos favorite department store — but since 2006 its been the home of Macys. Until the 1860s, State Street was a cramped, muddy path. Today, after many years as a commercial hub, its now home to just as many apartment-dwellers as retail stores.
