Overview


Since it was founded by German immigrants in the late 1800s, Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood has been an exciting and ever-changing place to live. Bordered by Diversey, Ashland, North Avenue, and Lake Michigan, Lincoln Park has undergone countless changes while always remaining a strong Chicago community.

Through a collection of more than 200 photographs, Lincoln Park, Chicago offers the reader a journey through homes, schools, businesses, museums, churches, the Lincoln Park Zoo, and the park itself. With anecdotes and images from before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, to the 1940s when war turned family homes into rooming houses, to the bustling, jam-packed Lincoln Park of today, this vibrant and beautiful neighborhood springs to life.

Meet the Author


Born and raised in Lincoln Park, Melanie Ann Apel believes there is probably no better place to live in Chicago than this busy, something-on-every-street-corner neighborhood. A freelance writer of more than 30 non-fiction titles for children and young adults, Melanie brings a perspective and energy to this book that could only come from a Lincoln Park native. With images from DePaul University Library's Department of Special Collections, the Chicago Historical Society, and many other neighbors and neighborhood groups, Melanie hopes to help preserve the history of the Lincoln Park neighborhood for future generations.
