Ravenswood-Lake View Community Collection
Lake View Township and its evolution from an independent municipality into current Northside communities, 1860s-1990s.
More than 100 early photographs represent Lake View Township and its residents, schools, homes, businesses and everyday rituals.
Over the next 100 years North Siders and their neighborhoods experienced tremendous changes as evidenced by their fashion, modes of transportation and the establishment of a number of schools, churches and social clubs. Notable local events include moving the Our Lady of Lourdes church building across Ashland Avenue and breaking ground for the Conrad Sulzer Regional Library.The Ravenswood-Lake View Community Collection is housed in the Northside Neighborhood History Collection.
