Summary

Summary

Chicago Yesterday is an unforgettable look into the past of one of the world's busiest cities. This wonderful collection of photographs combines the Mid-Western charm with the big city energy for which Chicagoans are so admired. The story of how Chicago became the hub of the nation is delightfully told. In these stunning large-format photographs we see Chicago prepare for the World's Fair, cope with the fortunes of the Great Depression (and the weather), deal with overcrowding, and evolve into one of the most magnetic cities in the world. With its enticing lakefront setting and buoyant spirit, Chicago attracted the world's leading architects, who flocked here like nowhere else and left a legacy that endures today.
