Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • Since it first grew up along the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago blossomed into a vibrant, progressive city with a
    landscape unlike any other. See how much the Midwest's cultural center has changed--and how much it's stayed the
    same--in this all-new edition of Chicago Then and Now.

    - Unstoppably prosperous in the mid-1800's, Chicago was laid to waste by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The remarkable
    period following the fire gave rise to some of the world's greatest architects and engineers—in fact, Chicago was
    rebuilt within two years and was soon known as the "world capital of modern architecture."
    - Birthplace of the Soaring Chicago School and Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie School of architecture, Chicago is a
    treasure trove of amazing buildings.
    - Explore some of Chicago's best-loved landmarks like Wrigley Field, Washington Park, Sears Tower, John Hancock
    Building, and St. Patrick's, the city's oldest church and survivor of the Great Fire, with intriguing archival images
    paired alongside modern photos.
    - Whether you're just blowing through the Windy City, or happen to be a lucky resident of the area, you'll find lots of
    satisfying material in this beautiful, updated edition.
