“Hidden Chicago Landmarks”

This is not a quiz, so there’s no need to send in any answers.  Rather, this is a selection of photos from my new book Hidden Chicago Landmarks.

These are the places that aren’t on the usual tour.  You might recognize some of them.  Now you can learn the fascinating history behind them.

The book has 60 stories.  Besides 42 current landmarks, there are 10 lost landmarks that are now gone.  The final section visits 8 interesting neighborhoods that most people simply drive by.

Hidden Chicago Landmarks is now available on Amazon.  Buy several and stock up!  Or wait until it comes to your library.  But whatever you do, I hope you have as much fun reading the book as I did writing it.

Here is the Amazon link—

    There is an actual landmark in the top photo, as von Zirgibl’s grave isn’t an actual landmark.
    It’s the abandoned vertical lift bridge, one of about six abandoned bridges the city has landmarked.
    I wonder what they will do when one of them & then all of them rust away & one collapses over Chicago or Calumet Rivers?
