history of my neighborhood in court records

Tue 21 April 2015 — filed under history

I was trying to figure out the historical boundaries of the "Summerdale" neighborhood when I came across Palmer v. City of Chicago:

excerpt of a 1910 property case

Some time when I have a bit more patience, I'll try to match up the confusing text in this case from 1910 with the modern street names of my neighborhood. The pre-1900 history of my little corner of Chicago is something I don't know much about. © ted whalen Powered by Pelican and tufte-css. Icons by Font Awesome and Font Awesome More
