(Chicago) Book of Valuations


  • ~Catalog 54~
  • (Baltic) 1919 - 1922 Book of Valuations of the Central Business District of Chicago

    Each page shows a roughly four square block area in the heart of Chicago, with the footprint of each space available in each building. As described, maps show, “size of each holding and surroundings also kind of improvements names of buildings and house numbers”. Covers an area from Chicago Avenue, south to Roosevelt Road, west to Halsted and east to the Lake. Interesting for the configuration of the docks and shoreline around the mouth of the Chicago River, and how its changed. Opposing each map is a large full page ad for a local business. A rarity.

    Printed on the typical newspaper type stock, this does have fragile covers, but the contents are still very good. pgs. 90 (page size 13.5 x 11.75)
