Product Overview

A View from City Hall: Mid-Century to Millennium offers readers a richly detailed, visual road map of Chicago as viewed from the mayor's office in City Hall. Within these pages are emblematic images of Chicago evolving from blue-ribbon Mayor Martin Kennelly's 1947-1955 administration through his successors, including the city's first and second black mayors, the city's first female mayor, the city's first non-Irish mayor since 1933, and finally, the Daley "double," Richard J. and Richard M. Witness the excitement as City Hall rolls out the welcome wagon for traveling kings and queens, dignitaries, and counts, as well as figures of great historic import, including Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Mikhail Gorbachev, Bishop Tutu, and Frank Sinatra. View rare scenes of the "builder" mayor tradition and the construction of such architectural triumphs as the Sears Tower, which was then the world's-tallest building. With over 200 photographs

accompanied by informative captions, this volume highlights a variety of Chicago's ethnic festivals, parades, and political campaigns, skillfully bringing each scene to life.
