This is the long-awaited second volume on Chicago Heights in the Images of America series. Chicago Heights Revisited expands on the popular first volume, as the authors cover the period from 1930-1970 in greater detail. What emerges from this wonderful collection of images is a multi-layered portrait of a lively city striving as one to assist in a World War II Allied victory, even while supporting a large spectrum of differing religious,social, and ethnic institutions. When residents remember Chicago Heights, they remember downtown. Images of the Liberty Restaurant, Nick Guzzino's Barbershop, and Rau's Toyland will evoke fond memories for past and present Chicago Heights residents. The various industries of the city are captured in historic photographs, reminding us all of the hard working residents that created the thriving community of Chicago Heights. Images of the World War II era capture the contributions that the people of Chicago Heights made for their nation and community.
