Abstract: 
For nearly half a century, the greater Lawndale area was the vibrant, spirited center of Jewish life in Chicago. It contained almost 40 percent of the city's entire Jewish population with over 70 synagogues and numerous active Jewish organizations and institutions, such as the Jewish People's Institute, the Hebrew Theological College, and Mount Sinai Hospital. Its residents included "King of Swing" Benny Goodman, Israeli prime minister Golda Meir, journalists Irv Kupcinet and Meyer Levin, federal judge Abraham Lincoln Marovitz, civil rights attorney Elmer Gertz, Eli's Cheesecake founder Eli Shulman, and comedian Shelley Berman. Many of the selected images come from the author's extensive collection. This book will bring back memories for those who lived there and retell the story of Jewish life on the West Side for those who did not. No matter where the scattered Jews of Chicago live now, many can trace their roots to this "Jerusalem of Chicago." (via: https://www.arcadiapublishing.com/9780738560151/Chicagos-Jewish-West-Side)

Abstract: 
"In The New American Village, Thrall captures four components of the new edge city - corporate, commercial, domestic, and environmental - in a way that no previous photographer has achieved... Documenting these new American places, he draws attention to the choices being made when they are built and some unexpected transformations... Always thoughtful, often striking or strangely beautiful, Thrall's remarkable images capture vast suburban world where, in ever increasing numbers, Americans are choosing to spend their lives."
