Publisher Description

Beverly Shores, Indiana, is a small resort community clustered along the southernmost tip of Lake Michigan, approximately forty miles southeast of Chicago. The town is now an island of private resort homes surrounded by the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, a federal park. Beverly Shores: A Suburban Dunes Resort presents an extensive collection of architectural and environmental photographs that reflect the changes in Chicago society between the late 1920s and World War II.
With this glimpse into Beverly Shores' past, readers of all ages will delight in discovering the unique heritage of this town in northwestern Indiana. From developer Frederick Bartlett's introduction of the Mediterranean Revival style of architecture, to Robert Bartlett's most enduring publicity stunt of buying pieces of the 1933-34 Chicago World's Fair and stationing them in the town, this architectural study includes nearly 200 vintage images of the evolution of this suburban dunes resort community.
