Jack Delano’s Homefront Photography

Center for Railroad Photography & Art and the Chicago History Museum.

Cloth with dust jacket, 11.5x11" oversize, 200 glossy pages, color and b/w photos throughout. 2014.

"108 photographs, including seventy-three of Jack Delano’s 1942–1943 views of Chicagoland railroads and their workers, reproduced in full color with rich quadtones for the black-and-whites. Contempoary photographs by Jack’s son, Pablo Delano, and the Center’s John Gruber and Scott Lothes complement the catalog.

"There are essays by Pablo Delano, Gruber, and University of Texas professor Jeremi Suri, a leading public historian. Biographical essays prepared by Center editorial consultant Jack Holzhueter as well as Gruber and Lothes tell the life stories of the forty-nine railroaders."
