With the help of Elan Penn's glorious images, university professor and public historian Dennis Cremin leads us on a spectacular tour of the windy city. Visit beloved landmarks and great institutions, such as the Water Tower, Hull House, and Navy Pier, and learn about Chicago's history from the settlement days to the grand metropolis we know today. Celebrate world-renowned cultural sites, such as the Art Institute, Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, as well as brilliant newcomers, including the Mexican Fine Arts Museum. Walk through the beautiful city-created Millennium Park, a spectacular result of the partnership between public and private sectors. Gaze at the economic, political, and artistic structures that marked Chicago's budding cityscape in the past, and still remain today: the Stock Yards Entrance, Pilgrim Baptist Church, and Lincoln Park's Bates Fountain. This collection truly captures the essence of a great city.
