Chicago's Loop: Then and Now (Illinois) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chicago's famed "Loop" is said to have gotten its name from the route of a cable car that looped the central business district in 1882. Since then, much has changed. This book captures the evolving urban landscape of the Chicago Loop, with a collection of over 100 vintage images, each coupled with its contemporary counterpart. Few cities are as renowned for their architecture as is Chicago. The impressive skyscrapers in and around the Loop give Chicago a skyline second to none. And with more than three dozen historic landmarks, the Loop is home to many of the city's most recognized structures. From a 19th century trading post to the great financial, business, and entertainment districts of the 21st century, Chicago's Loop: Then and Now documents the growth and changes of the Windy City's downtown.
