Famous landmarks, much-loved restaurants, sports stadia, movie palaces that really were palaces, pleasure gardens, piers and lake steamers, plus the Union Stock Yards—all make up lost Chicago

 

Some of Chicago's greatest architectural losses are represented here in this tribute to a bygone city of Chicago—the Stock Exchange Building; Midway Gardens; the Marshall Field Wholesale Store; and buildings from the 1893 Columbian Exposition, the World's Fair that showed Chicago had bounced back from its ruinous fire of 1871. It also pays homage to the meat-packing industry, railcar construction, and mail-order business—industries that once drove the Chicago economy but have since moved on. Listed by date of loss, this collection traces a nostalgic path from the time it was known both as the Windy City and Porkopolis, and presents an astonishing range of vanished Chicago from the lakeshore mansions of the rich and famous, to communities built up by the city's immigrant workforce. It also includes photographic page spreads of Chicago trains, the village of Pullman, White City, Riverview Park, lake steamers, the Illinois Theater, Comiskey Park, Palmer House, the 1871 fire, and Grand Central Station.

Book Description PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Lost Chicago looks at the cherished places in the city that time, progress and fashion have swept aside. The series from Pavilion Books looks back in loving detail at many of the things that have helped create a city's unique identity that have since disappeared; the streetcars, the shops, the parks, the churches, the amusement parks, even the annual parades. It looks at the architectural gems that failed to be preserved, the hotels that could not be adapted and fell to the wrecking ball and the novelty buildings. Famous landmarks, much-loved restaurants, sports stadia, movie palaces (that really were palaces), pleasure gardens, piers and lake steamers, plus the Union stockyards - all feature in Lost Chicago. The book also includes buildings from the 1893 Columbian Exposition, the World's Fair that showed Chicago had bounced back from its ruinous fire of 1871. There are the industries that once drove the Chicago economy but have since moved on, meat-packing, railcar construction and mail-order being three of its world renowned businesses.
