Rick Kogan and Charles Osgood's Sidewalks column for the Chicago Tribune Sunday Magazine is a tour of the city of Chicago like other. Accompanied by Osgood's evocative color photographs, Kogan's pieces revisit the lost places and people of Chicago. In this collection you will find an elegy for Maxwell Street, the marketplace that pulsed with city life for more than one hundred years; a magical miniature golf course; memories of Bensinger's pool hall; and much, much more.
