|W. T. Stead Map, 1894
Stead's If Christ Came to Chicago opened with a foldout juxtaposing an image of Christ and the money changers with this map of the block bounded by Clark, Dearborn, Harrison, and Polk Streets in Chicago's First Ward. The map both illustrated many of the reform issues raised in the book and anticipated the use of mapping to present social information that informed the Hull House Maps and Papers and the Chicago School sociologists.
