Rear dust jacket notes: "Here is a charming and informative guide to the historical domestic architecture of one of Chicago's oldest neighborhoods - Hyde Park - Kenwood. Jean F. Block, a lifelong resident of the community, has written an engaging text illustrated with seventy-six photographs of houses that are still standing (along with a map of contemporary Hyde Park locating these structures), fifteen early photographs and drawings, and numerous maps tracing the development of the area. Biographical notes on more than forty architects - among them Dwight Perkins, George Maher, Henry Ives Cobb, and Frank Lloyd Wright - provide listings of their buildings. An invaluable appendix, organized by street, gives the construction date, architect, owner, and owner's occupation for more than nine hundred dwellings."
