The Chicago River: A History in Photographs is the product of almost three years of research, image acquisition, writing, and production.  Numerous libraries and photography collections in Chicago were searched for images of the Chicago River.  Professional and amateur photographers were asked to provide images that represent a modern glimpse of the Chicago River today.  A list of photo credits for images included in the finished book is provided on this page.  This book would not have been possible without the cooperation of so many artists, individuals, and institutions.
Many Chicago historians and river enthusiasts also provided valuable help in researching the river's wonderful history.  Their generosity of time, energy, and expertise have helped to make this an informative and educational endeavor.  Full credits can be found in the acknowledgements page in the book.
