520 1  "When the Chicago Daily News closed its doors in March of 
       1978 after over a century of publication, the city mourned
       the loss of an American original. The Daily News was one 
       of the first newspapers in the country to attract new 
       readers by featuring black-and-white photography. Starting
       in 1900, staffers from the paper's art department were 
       lugging bulky cameras, heavy glass plates, and explosive 
       flash powder throughout the city. A labor strike, a boxing
       match, or a crime scene - it was all in a day's work for 
       the Daily News photographer." "Chicago Under Glass: Early 
       Photographs from the Chicago Daily News is the first 
       collection of images from the photo staff's early years, 
       1901 to 1930. Mark Jacob and Richard Cahan, journalists 
       themselves, have selected more than 250 images - many of 
       which have never before been published - from nearly 57,
       000 glass negatives housed at the Chicago History Museum. 
       They include rare photographs of Jack Johnson measuring up
       to a fellow boxer, Buster Keaton with his wife and child, 
       waiting to board a train, and the notorious Al Capone, 
       smoking a cigar and consulting with his lawyer. The 
       chapters are organized thematically with an introduction 
       by the authors, and each image is accompanied by 
       historical commentary."--BOOK JACKET.
