A nice photographic history of Our Town's Lake Shore Drive – which the author's hail as Urban America's Most Beautiful Roadway, and awe shucks, we're kinda proud! As lifelong Chicagoans, we can almost take the view for granted. . .especially if you get trapped there in a blizzard or during The Taste. Flipping through this and seeing the great historic and contemporary shots, we're loving it all over again, though. Hardcover, 208 pages.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
