Everywhere you go in Chicago, history peeks through the cracks in the pavement…

“Everywhere you go in Chicago, history peeks through the cracks in the pavement, through the spaces in the crumbling mortar between the old bricks, and from old painted signs now buried behind a maze of pipes and cables… Sometimes an old building survives, and sometimes you can even see a faded old sign on the side of it that has survived dozens of Chicago winters. Sometimes you can see old streetcar tracks in the potholes, or old bricks peeking out through the blacktop. And sometimes, even if the building is gone and the story is forgotten, perhaps the ghosts are still there…”

–Adam Selzer, The Ghosts of Chicago (2013)
