Accompanied by evocative color photographs by Charles Osgood, Kogans pieces revisit the lost places and people of Chicago, and take readers down the quiet byways and thriving thoroughfares, pointing out the characters and cornerstones, the oddities and institutions that make the city what it is.

In this collection you will find an elegy for Maxwell Street, the marketplace that pulsed with city life for more than 100 years- a remembrance of a disturbing advertisement (Are you a slave to housework?) on the side of a building on Irving Park Road- a cross marking a deadly intersection- a magical miniature golf course- as well as ballad singer Fred Holstein, the denizens of the World Gym and memories of Bensingers pool hall, the day-camp kids of summer, bike couriers, the creatures of the beach, and much, much more.

Here is Chicago, past, present, and--lets hope--future, captured in the unique archive of Sidewalks.
