"This guide to some of Chicago's historic neighborhoods of the South Side is the first of what we hope will be an important series interpreting the historical processes that have formed and shaped the city's community life. Both words and images have been used to create a historical and social iconography of each of the areas covered, in the hope that this combination will not only convey the changes that have occurred in each neighborhood, but will also impart a sense of each community's uniqueness" -- from preface.
