Format: Paperback
As a Chicago historian and a Hyde Park resident, I had to take a look at this book. In general, I am often disappointed in the Arcadia Press books. They are often little more than a bad picture book. But this is possibly one of the best in the Chicago series.
Hyde Park is a community that has just celebrated 150 years (in 2003). For more than 100 of those years it has been part of Chicago.
Hyde Park is the home of the University of Chicago, the Museum of Science and Industry and the site of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition (recent building in the area uncovered the footings for the original Ferris Wheel). As such, the community has had a long and rich history.
I do not know who Leslie Hudson is (no biography in the book), but she obviously did her homework and research. The post card images have been captioned with detailed information. The book itself is divided into thematic sections with the cards sorted into a historical order.
I was a little disappointed in the sparseness of the Sans Souci material (on of Chicago's first amusement parks) as there are many wonderful post cards from there. There were also some other nuggets I was sorry to see missing (i.e. a hotel that suffered after it was recommended by the ...), but overall I was very pleased by the content and the thoroughness of much of the research.
A fine book for fans of Chicago history as well as fans of Hyde Park.
