South Chicago, U.S.A: A photographic essay
ISBN: 0971495009

Ellis Avenue Studios. 2002

From Foreword - South Chicago is the area my grandparents chose to settle in, nearly one hundred years ago, when they emigrated from Poland. It is the neighborhood where my parents were born, grew to young adulthood, met each other and married and the place I returned to, many years after the first generation had died. This book is a personal thanks to the place of my own birth and childhood memories

thanks to a neighborhood where much has been taken by outsiders and little returned for those who have remained. (Description by http-mart)
