Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book brought back many memories and could have included another volume just on German bakeries in Chicago. Gus Widen's was a personal family friend and every birthday cake we had was from Widen's. Zum Deutschen Eck was an incredible hangout in the Lincoln Belmond Ashland area. Lincoln Turner Hall hosted awesome concerts and events where you could meet many of your friends. The German American Youth Choir was directed by professional music directors and the two concerts a year were very well attended. My grandmother belonged to several German women societies and health and welfare clubs on the south side. Coverage of the late wave of German immigrants i.e. 1925 - 1930ish brought more professionals to Chicago than any other time. Artists, architects etc. added tremendously to what Chicago is today. Germans really assimilated quickly especially when under pressure during the two wars. This was a good start. When are you going to finish.

One terrific book. A snapshot, not only of the German community of Chicago, but a history of the city itself. A must read for any fan of Chicago's storied past.
