About the Author

The Waukegan Historical Society was founded in 1968 to help keep the city's history alive. Through numerous programs and presentations the society has provided a record of many of the contributors to Waukegan's growth and importance. Publication of a photo record seems like a natural continuation of this mission. The memorable images collected in Waukegan, Illinois are of those people and events that made the city great, and were selected from the society's archives. We hope that many memories may be sparked as one wanders through our collective past.

...but it's a lot easier to find a parking spot in Waukegan. This is a dandy book, full of wonderful pictures and descriptions... and it makes a terrific stocking stuffer! Please support our efforts to revitalize our town, and buy one (or more!) of these.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By R. Tomlin on March 25, 2001
Format: Paperback
An historic-image tour de force that will change your life. Even if you're not lucky enough to be from Waukegan, Illinois, you should buy this book and pretend that you are. Buy the book and display the book in a prominent area. Better yet, buy several copies and display them in every corner of your home and office. When people ask "Is this where you're from?", tell them that you are not only from there, you spend every waking minute reliving treasured memories of playing in the ravines, swimming in Lake Michigan, reading in the old Carnegie Library, or watching shows in the historic Genesee Theater. This book and its great old photos will go a long way to helping you adopt Waukegan as your new hometown. As the photos in the book demonstrate, anyplace else pales in comparison.

I spent years in Waukegan as a child. Still warms my heart to read about Waukegan of the old days, not what is going on in IIlinois these days.
