Uptown Portrait of a Chicago Neighborhood in the Mid-1970s

    Chicago's Book Press

    Wicked photogrpahy book.

    This book of striking black and white photographs forms a fascinating time capsule. The photos, taken during the mid 1970s, depict life in the aging North Side Chicago neighborhood called Uptown. More than 250 evocative photographs comprise a portrait of this neighborhood in transition. The author's photos allow the reader to experience the conflicts and ironies of life in one of Chicago's poorest, most diverse and densely populated neighborhoods.
