Cromie, retired book page editor of the Chicago Tribune, first wrote this detailed history in 1958. This very beautiful reprint and updating of the material covers the "great" fire and the city's recovery. Cromie's journalism sensibility make this much more than a dry historical document - it's full of the small human-interest details that a historian might overlook but that would not be missed by a good reporter. And it's illustrated with photos that have been beautifully presented.
