A decade after she published Images of America: Lincoln Park, Chicago, Lincoln Park native and current resident Melanie Ann Apel is back with another look of this gem of a neighborhood. Lincoln Park Revisited takes the reader on another tour of the neighborhood, peering into its schools and workplaces, visiting its vast park, also called Lincoln Park, complete with a zoo, conservatory, gardens, farm, and beaches, pondering the difference between a Lincoln Park winter and a Lincoln Park summer. It is a fresh look into the past and a memory book of the present, to be preserved for future generations. As the bustling neighborhood with the hometown feel continues to grow and change, this new collection of more than 200 historical and modern-day photographs serves as a much-awaited companion piece to Lincoln Park, Chicago.
