Have not finish the book------But it all that I thpught it would be.
Being 71 and living in South Shore I spent many a day down there. Went to school, shopping, playing and dated in the area. Ihe book brings great feelings back to me.

I also buy anything that I can find on chicago and putting it on cds. so my children and grand-children know the past the now and the future.

Anyone that has lived in or aroud Chicago it is a MUST.
It is sad to see the changes but that is life---like or not.

Mary-Ann (Fitzgibbom) Nicks.

This book is great! Great pictures and good narratives about the city. We spent several hours showing this book to my 95 year old mother in law who grew up and worked in Chicago. The book delighted her as she viewed the pictures! The book was a great vehicle to take her back in time. I highly recommend it!

The book has many fine pictures showing the change from the 40's and 50's. There are a lot of pictures of the Chicago Transit Authority and how the buses and streetcars have changed. My brother-in-law saw the book, and liked it so much, that I gave it to him.
