The title is "Irish Chicago" by John Gerard McLaughlin, and it's 128 pages
are loaded with some great photographs of the Irish in Chicago. It costs about

were not included. This was a pigeon died green that the Captain would pass off
as a "rare Irish bird." It was proudly displayed at the Southside parades.
