P>Period Paper has obtained an unusual collection of prints with character sketches of Chicago movers and shakers from 1904. These men (yes, they are all male) were active in the business, industrial, and professional life of the city, and they are depicted here in a cartoon-style format by some of the top newspaper cartoonists of the day. This collection is sure to be of interest to anyone researching their family history--perhaps you
will find a family member here!
