The Book of Chicago

The Book of Chicago – Robert Shackleton

In his facile, chatty way the author tells of the city’s marvelous growth, taking us from the Loop through that Olympus of Chicago, the Lake Shore Drive to Oak Park and South Chicago. The landmarks of the early settlers and the “beauty spots” of the modern city are all described in such a manner that they cannot fail to appeal to even the most conservative of Easterners. Mr. Shackleton in all his books of the cities, shows each one distinctly; its characteristics, institutions, literary traditions, landmarks, and its people. Nothing is too small for him to chronicle—their habits of speech, their eating, ancestor worship. In each city he manages to discover many odd corners not found by the usual sightseer. His is a sympathetic, clear-eyed, often humorous interpretation of the city in each case.

Chicago: Its History and its Builders Volume 5

Chicago: Its History and its Builders Volume 5 – Josiah Seymour Currey

Maybe there has never been a more comprehensive work on the history of Chicago than the five volumes written by Josiah S. Currey – and possibly there will never be. Without making this work a catalogue or a mere list of dates or distracting the reader and losing his attention, he builds a bridge for every historically interested reader. The history of Windy City is not only particularly interesting to her citizens, but also important for the understanding of the history of the West. This volume is number five out of five and contains more biographies of the most important Chicago citizens in the foundation times.

A Centennial history of the city of Chicago – Its men and institutions

A Centennial history of the city of Chicago – Its men and institutions – Charles Anderson Dana

For sure this book can not claim that it is a complete, comprehensive history of Chicago’s first 100 years, but the publishers believe it contains more important facts concerning the growth of the city during the first century of its existence than many other like publications. The superior arrangement of facts and events mapped out stand for themselves and mirror the condition of the city at the dawn of the 20th century.
