Vintage Photos of Rogers Park

In another post, I saw an off-topic conversation where people were expressing an interest in seeing old photos of Rogers Park. I am the Office Admin and Volunteer Coordinator at Rogers Park/West Ridge Historical Society, and thought I'd share some info on what is available through our organization.

In our office, we have several books for sale that have wonderful old photos and great info on the history of our neighborhood:

- "Neighborhoods Within Neighborhoods: 20th Century Life on Chicago's Far North Side"
-"Chicago's Far North Side; An Illustrated History of Rogers Park and West Ridge"
- "Images of America: Rogers Park"
- "Images of America: West Ridge"

We also have a massive digital archive which includes many photos that have never been published. In our office, you can browse this archive on our computer. The files are organized so you can search on a particular building or subject, or you can browse areas of the neighborhood by zone. Using the zone search, you can zero in on a smaller piece of the neighborhood...many people enjoy using this option to see what once existed in the area close to where they live.

Last but not least, you are welcome to browse our office library. This includes misc. books, newsletters and scrapbooks on the neighborhood and related materials.

Our office is always open 10-4 on Saturdays and Wednesdays, and at other times by chance or by appointment. For more info, feel free to contact us at info@rpwrhs.org.

  • Helen, we will probably get some more. I will let the merch buyer know of your interest.

    I am at the office today until 4pm. If anyone wants to check out our digital photo archive, come in over :-)

  • sheila clerkin 4th Generation Rogers Park

    Stephanie, I bought some nice note cards that have old photos of RP people and events on them. I bought a packet of 4 @ The Clark St. Festival, RPHS booth, last summer. Great gift item and I'll enjoy sending them to people that I grew up with here in RP. I'm sure these will be a "good sell", just start marketing them more widely.

Crime Reports Don’t Reflect Violent Crime Near 6 Chicago Universities

“The crime occurred near Albion and Lakewood, which per the Clery Act, is not within the university’s reportable geographical boundaries,” said a Loyola University spokesman. “Thus, the Clery Act prohibits us from including that crime in the annual safety bulletin.”

    Rape is vicious and brutal and we should wish it upon no one; not even the the worst people in our society. We should rise above lust for vengeance and cruelty. As difficult as it is at times we should not wish for pain in other people's life.
