Chicago's Gangland, 1931
Published Thursday, November 03, 2005 by CCAer | E-mail this post
The Encyclopedia of Chicago has a Flash version of a map
depicting Chicago's gang landscape as it appeared in 1931. With lots of illustrations and descriptive text, this is an entertaining map to read. Sadly, the Flash interface and image is fairly small; it would take a bit of time to go through the entire map. It would be nice to get a paper copy of this one. The University of Illinois has a larger viewer
showing the map (and appears to have, at one time, a downloadable Mr. SID file).
