UPTOWN: PORTRAIT OF A CHICAGO NEIGHBORHOOD

calumet412:

I don’t endorse too many products here at Calumet 412 but as ‘tis the season, I must draw attention to an amazing book which was just released in time for those looking for the perfect gift for Chicago history buffs.

The oft referenced on Calumet 412 street photographer, Bob Rehak, compiled more than 250 photographs taken around Uptown during the early 1970’s. It is an awesome archive of a moment in time which, for better or worse, helped shape a city.

Visit www.bobrehak.com for a preview of his work.

Also, a big thank you to Bob for including Calumet 412 in the acknowledgements. It has been my pleasure to post his historical photographs here on the site!

We love this book from a local photographer published by a local press. Make sure you purchase it from a local Chicago business this year. Available from us or from any of the fine bookstores in this great city of ours:

Opened in 1897, and once considered the crown jewel in Chicago’s western park system, the structure still stands today.
