It's always interesting to learn about Uptown's storied past and secrets. So we were glad when a reader wrote in: "Hello UU. I was watching Lost Worlds on the History Channel about Capone's Chicago and they showed this aerial photo of the tunnels that run under the Lawrence/Broadway area. I have been looking for something like this for a while, so I downloaded the episode and made a screen shot of the image. Pretty cool stuff, I wonder how accurate it is. Maybe the owners of Shake Rattle and Read and the Green Mill can confirm."
If you're curious to see more, a short clip of the show can be seen here (Uptown is at the 3:30 point), or you can order the DVD here (among other places). Sadly, the show's not on the History Channel's tv schedule for the foreseeable future. Photo credits: Lost Worlds: Al Capone's Secret City
