Overview

One of the grand annual events in Chicago's history is the spectacular Christmas Parade on State Street. Filled with pageantry, these parades showcase amazing floats and displays, often featuring local VIPs along with Hollywood stars. In this companion to Christmas on State Street: The 1940s and Beyond, Robert P. Ledermann continues his celebration of Christmas in Chicago. Over 200 photographs, including 16 pages of full color, lead you on a wonderful trip down memory lane; you will also share the recollections of many famous personalities who participated in the parade. Crowds viewed the famous windows at Marshall Field's and Carson's while awaiting the parade; complete sets of those windows are featured here. Finally, Chicago can be cold in the winter, so to warm up we'll stop in at Miller's Pub and the Berghoff Restaurant.

A lifelong Chicago resident and nostalgia buff, local historian Robert P. Ledermann is also the author of Christmas on State Street: The 1940s and Beyond. He worked on State Street for many years, and now enjoys researching and writing about Chicago's grand history.
