Chicago's Southeast Side by Rod Sellers

Book Description

Steel and the steel industry are the backbone ofChicago s southeast side, an often overlookedneighborhood with a rich ethnic heritage. Bolstered by the prosperous steel industry, the community attracted numerous, strong-willed people with adesire to work from distinct cultural backgrounds. In recent years, the vitality of the steel industry has diminished. Chicago s Southeast Side displays many rare and interesting pictures that capture the spirit of the community when the steel industry was a vibrant force. Although annexed in 1889 by the city of Chicago, the community has maintained its own identity through the years. In an attempt to remain connected to their homelands, many immigrants established businesses, churches, and organizations to ease their transition to a new and unfamiliar land. The southeast side had its own schools, shopping districts, and factories. As a result, it became a prosperous, yet separate, enclave within the city of Chicago."
