Now And Then

Another fun historical photo showing how much the 4600 block of Broadway has changed. While we are on the topic, many readers have expressed interest in the history of Uptown in general, and also history on the many hotels in Uptown that now serve as affordable housing and SRO's. "Jazz Age Chicago" is an excellent resource for Uptown history. Check out links on Uptown history here, and Uptown hotel history here. We will also add "Jazz Age Chicago" to our useful links.
