Chicago Jazz Hot Spots, 1946 – Map

February 20, 2016

These images are from Esquire’s 1946 Jazz Book.
The book includes a great map entitled “Chicago Jazz Spots” – indicating all hot spots for jazz in that era. Map unfolds to roughly 30” x 20”. (see images directly below)
First image shows the entire map. My apologies, but the details have insufficient definition due to size of map; however, you can get a feel for the artwork and some of the neighborhoods in overview.
Second image shows the authors to be Paul Edward Miller and the famous Richard M. Jones. Third image is a detail of the 31st and State Street area, with locations and names of many legendary establishments. Fourth image has similar detail showing the 35th and State Street area.
