Anyone who is familiar with Erik Larson’s book “The Devil in the White City“, would have enjoyed the presentation by authors Paul Durica and Bill Savage. Their book “Chicago by Day and Night” is a practical guide for those who attended the Columbian Exposition in 1893. This well researched book takes the readers on a tour of the seedier side of the Fair and where to find adult “sporting” places. The authors visited all known addresses to see if the buildings were still standing and what they and the neighborhoods are like in the present day Chicago.
The Union League Club of Chicago hosted cocktails and appetizers before the event and those in attendance were treated to a glimpse of the past. It was a fun and interesting evening that was enjoyed by all.
