About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

"Yank" Cunningham and son: c. 1895

"Yank" Cunningham and son: c. 1895

Taken in Chicago in about 1895. John Dominic "Yank" Cunningham (shown here with his son William) operated a tavern/restaurant in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on West 111th Street in the Southwest Chicago at that time. He passed away in 1907. Yank was my great aunt Rose Ann Jackson's brother-in-law.

"Yank" Cunningham info

I am looking for more information, especially pictures, of James Dominic "Yank" Cunningham. Specifically pictures of the saloon, restaurant, hotel he ran at 11th & Sacremento in the Chicago neighborhood of Mt Greenwood at the turn of the century. Please post below if anyone has anything. Thanks!
