About This Book

The Marquette Park area on the southwest side of Chicago is comprised of two neighborhoods- Chicago Lawn and Marquette Manor.

This book depicts the evolution of both neighborhoods with photographs and images of the earliest developments, buildings, and families-some of which have been professionally reproduced from original glass slides-beginning in 1876 with the arrival of John F. Eberhart, the "Father of Chicago Lawn." Due focus is paid to the common denominator and centerpiece of both communities-Marquette Park. Beginning with early photographs of this popular 323-acre park and golf course, Chicago Lawn/Marquette Manor takes the reader through its grand beginnings as "the playground of the Southwest Side, " and features activities throughout the years, including the racial strife it unfortunately acquired national notoriety for. The reader will have the opportunity to peek inside Amos Cravener's grocery store and H.E. Cain's pharmacy, c. 1900, as well as walk down 63rd Street when it was surrounded by prairie, watch as new buildings appear, and return when it is fully populated.
