In this presentation, Wilbert Stroeve of the Chicago Map Society will introduce the Society’s book Chicago-Lake Geneva: A 100 Year Round Trip, which reproduces a 1905 guide that was used to navigate from Chicago to Lake Geneva and Beloit, with photos of the same scenes a century later.

The book shows a Chicago region that has been transformed — and even more remarkable, a few scenes that have remained unchanged. Whether you want to journey from Chicago to Lake Geneva, or just travel through time, you’ll enjoy the trip!

Tickets for this lecture are free to members and $5/non-members, and will be sold at the door on the day of the event. There will be no online ticket sales in advance for this event.
