Chicago in Maps

The Chicago Tribune profiles local map collector Robert A. Holland, whose book, Chicago in Maps, 1612 to 2002, was published late last year. From the article: “In a section of the book Holland thinks of as ‘worlds within worlds,’ the particulars that gave character to the city are mapped. There’s a 1931 cute but surprisingly accurate gangland map, a map from Esquire magazine showing the city’s jazz clubs from 1914 to 1928, and an ethnic map from 1982 by now Chicago Tribune writer Ron Grossman.”
