    Pullman Neighborhood of Chicago Photographs

    I recently completed a project photographing the Pullman neighborhood of Chicago and put together a website for it. Please take a look— https://pullmanphotos.com/

    Pullman is an historical area that began as a company town for the Pullman Palace Car Company owned by George Pullman. It manufactured and operated railroad cars—most famously sleeper and dining cars It became very significant to the Labor and Civil Rights Movements of the 19th and 20th centuries. It recently was designated a National Monument

    Nice work Richard. I vastly prefer B&W for this sort of imaging.

    I have never been there, despite 50 years in Chicago.

    I am surprised by your website comment, "It is one of the friendliest and most welcoming areas I have photographed...".

    I did not expect that reaction.

    Keep it coming!

    Great job, Richard. I was going to document the historic buildings of Cairo before they are demolished, but got sidelined. Kudos!

    Thanks all!

    Randy, Pullman is quite interesting. Many of the residents have a firm understanding of its historical importance and are happy to share their experiences with strange photographers. I met people who have lived there almost 50 years and treasure the fact that it is a community made up of people from varied ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. It's a unique place.

    I fondly remember this work when you showed it to my SAIC students last summer. Good for you!
    Thanks,

    Well done Mr. Wasserman. Took one quick look through the photos, but I will go back to study them. It's obvious that they run deep. Thanks!
