Chicago Then and Now (R), Hardback Book

Chicago Then and Now (R) Hardback

Part of the Then and Now series

Hardback

Description

Chicago is a city that through history has triumphed over nature and disaster.

It has bounced back from a calamitous fire, re-engineered the flow of the Chicago River and challenged gravity with a series of pioneering skyscrapers.

Chicago Then and Now pairs archival photos with modern views to tell the story of the city's rich history.

It is a story of determination and pride, and the evocative photos on these pages reflect the many faces of Chicago's heritage.
