A city of lush green parks and gray lake waters, of steel towers and high rise canyons, of sun and snow and, all too often, wind, Chicago is at once urban and bucolic, decidedly modern and almost pre-World War II quaint. From the stately Wrigley Building to the Billy Goat Tavern; the Union Stock Yard to Wrigley's Field; from the opulent Chicago Theater to the carved pieties of Graceland Cemetery; from the Art Institute of Chicago to Marshall Field's and Co.—Chicago, A Pictorial Souvenir, a marvelous portrait in words and pictures, perfectly captures this city's richly-textured diversity.
Chicago, A Pictorial Souvenir is a wonderful keepsake for anyone familiar with Chicago, and the perfect gift for anyone eager for a sense of the strength and style of this quintessential city of the American midwest.
