Booknews
This volume pairs archival b&w photographs from the 19th and early 20th centuries with color views of the diverse and dynamic city of today. The images tell how following the Great Chicago Fire on October 8, 1871, Chicagoans went to work, rebuilding the entire city within two years, and hosting the World's Columbian Exposition within the next 12. They show the result of the work of the nation's foremost architects who were on the ground floor of skyscraper technology (so to speak) and designed three of the tallest buildings in the world today.
