Chicago's Pilsen Neighborhood


This book is a collection of photos, vintage postcards, historic maps, scrapbook clippings and news reports that pertain to the Chicago neighborhood called Pilsen.  Well known entertainers, political leaders and artists like Antonin Dvorak,  Carl Sandburg,  Cantinflas,  César Chávez, George Lopez and others visited Pilsen but most of all, working -class families made the community vital.  Their murals and bungalows brought color into a dreary industrial area.  For more than a century Germans, Lithuanians, Poles, Italians, Czechs, and Latinos contributed their work  and talents to the neighborhood.  Today Pilsen is still a popular destination for immigrants and tourists alike.
