    Kathleen Maguire has lived in Chicago her whole life, and has been a resident of the city’s South, North, and West Sides. She earned postgraduate degrees from the University of Illinois at Chicago and DePaul University. As a high-school teacher, Maguire brought Chicago’s character to life for her students through neighborhood field trips and authentic research. In her current role as a guide for Walk Chicago Tours, she brings Chicago’s brilliance and magic firsthand to its visitors. She currently lives in Chicago’s Logan Square.
    Chicago has changed greatly over time--but it has always been a place of innovation and excitement. In this completely revised and updated, compact edition of Chicago Then and Now, readers can breeze through the Windy City as they look at fascinating, detailed photos from throughout the city’s history and read about the landmarks, parks, and people who’ve made it what it is today. From legendary hotels to architectural masterpieces to the bustling riverfront, Chicago Then and Now offers an innovative view of this beloved city.
    When it was built in 1897, the ‘L,’ Chicago’s elevated railroad, revolutionized commuting. Today, it has been joined by miles of underground subway and is a crucial part of daily life. For more than 150 years, Marshall Field was Chicago’s favorite department store--but since 2006 it’s been the home of Macy’s. Until the 1860s, State Street was a cramped, muddy path. Today, after many years as a commercial hub, it’s now home to just as many apartment-dwellers as retail stores.
