The Windy City, our second home and one of our favorite places to visit. But even with growing up visiting Chicago through the years, the city seems to reinvent itself time after time. And now, thanks to the Chicago Tribune and their Instagram account you can relive times gone by through the year with a collection of vintage photos of Chicago and the people who live there (and their pets). The book is a collection of moments that made the city, ones that bring the past to life and will make you fall more in love with Chicago.
The @vintagetribune Instagram, a beloved photography account produced by the photo editors of the Chicago Tribune, has been mining the newspaper’s vast subterranean archives since 2014 and breathing new life into its most gram-worthy black-and-white images.
You won’t find the 300 photos in this collection in your typical time capsule. These aren’t the dramatic, front-page, history-making photographs we’re used to seeing from photojournalists. These are the images that would have been posted had Instagram existed in, say, 1932—the offbeat, gritty, strange, funny, rare, charming, everyday images captured in the moments that happened between the well-documented events that make up the city’s official biography.
This book is an unexpected, inspired portrait of one of the world’s great metropolises, told through the lenses of the countless feet-on-the-street photographers from the city’s hometown paper.
What we love about the book – it highlights times gone by with a mix of it the help of technology. See Chicago as you’ve never experienced it and get your copy of Vintage Chicago for your travel bug or friends that love the city.
