Guide to Chicago’s Historic Suburbs on Wheels and on Foot
By Ira J. Bach and Susan Wolfson
· Introduction by Carroll William Westfall
Although the Chicago area is famous the world over for its splendid architecture, the architectural treasures of the suburban area have remained largely unknown. Ira Bach, assisting by Susan Wolfson, has now provided a comprehensive readable guide to more than 850 nineteenth century dwellings, commercial buildings, public buildings, and churches which are memorable and well worth visiting for their fine architecture and their historic significance.
