Lost Chicago by David Lowe, Book, 1st Edition


Lost Chicago by David Lowe. Houghton Mifflin, Boston, 1975. 1st edition hardcover with dust jacket. 'The City of Big Shoulders' has always been our most quintessentially American, and world-class, architectural metropolis. Since the wake of the Great Fire of 1871, a great building Boom, still the largest in the history of the nation, produced the first modern skyscrapers. Though this trend continued well into the 20th c, hard financing and unnecessary acts of demolishment left many previous cultural attractions abandoned and then destroyed. This book explores the architectural and cultural history of this great American city. “Lost Chicago is more than just another coffee table gift, more than merely a history of the city’s architecture; it is a history of the whole city as a cultural creation.”.
