Editorial Reviews

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Impressive collection. Many [photos] have never been published.
Milwaukee Magazine
This book of black and white photos beautifully chronicles life pre-condo. The tightly written text and photo captions by Milwaukee native Elizabeth A. Chasco inform, but it's the images that tell all.
Book News bnet.com
Chasco is a Milwaukee, Wisconsin-based independent scholar specializing in history and museum studies. She presents a collection of some 200 striking b&w historic photographs of Milwaukee selected from the thousands held in numerous archives.
Paul Geenen
This book is an opportunity to study the growth of Milwaukee and its people from the 1860's to the 1960's through fascinating photos that keep you turning the pages for more. The book is divided into four sections, "The Immigrant City" from 1860s to 1899, "Captains of Industry", from 1900 to 1917, "Prohibition and Progress" from 1918 to 1939, and "War and the Future" from 1940 to 1969. Each photo has a short, concise explanation that underscores an interesting part of Milwaukee's history...Historic Photos of MILWAUKEE, from Turner Publishing Company, 206 pages, will make a nice addition to your coffee table or TV room.
