Chicago Days (Illinois)

Chicago Days (Illinois) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Journey back through time to relive events that shaped the Chicago metropolitan area and contributed to its world-class reputation. Chicago Days is a collection of 150 essays and 500 dramatic photographs compiled from the voluminous files of the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Historical Society, and other important collections.

Book News Annotation:

The staff of the Chicago Tribune presents 150 moments in politics, sports, the arts, entertainment, and business from as early as 1847--the year the Chicago Tribune was founded. The text and period illustrations pay tribute to the area's crowded history of growth, innovation, and triumph over adversity. At the same time, they recall the city's crooked politicians, notorious gangsters, and disreputable characters.
