I don’t endorse too many products here at Calumet 412 but as ‘tis the season, I must draw attention to an amazing book which was just released in time for those looking for the perfect gift for Chicago history buffs.
The oft referenced on Calumet 412 street photographer, Bob Rehak, compiled more than 250 photographs taken around Uptown during the early 1970’s. It is an awesome archive of a moment in time which, for better or worse, helped shape a city.
Click through for a link to Amazon, or visit www.bobrehak.com for a preview of his work.

Be sure to visit your local bookseller, like Unabridged Books on Broadway, to pick up your copy.

Also, a big thank you to Bob for including Calumet 412 in the acknowledgements. It has been my pleasure to post his historical photographs here on the site!
