Summary
"The story of Chicago's Mexican communities is an important part of the rich and diverse mosaic of Chicago history. Mexican Chicago presents an intriguing visual record of the earliest beginnings of Mexican communities in the city. It explores such vibrant and distinct neighborhoods as Pilsen, Little Village, South Deering, Back of the Yards, and other neighborhoods that reflect Mexican culture"--Amazon
