About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

"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.

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!
