I found a great seasonal book in the Genealogy & Local History Room: The Best Christmas Decorations in Chicagoland by Mary Edsey. It was published in 1995 and features photos and addresses of the best places to see holiday decorations in the city of Chicago and the surrounding area.
The book includes two houses from Glenview: the Dorband house on Glenview Road and the Olsowski house on Huber Lane. The Olsowski's PVC pipe Christmas tree is a featured photograph.
Come by the Genealogy & Local History Room to peruse The Best Christmas Decorations in Chicagoland. There are lots of fun photographs and stories of holiday traditions from around the area. Most of the photographs are from the nineties but there are stories and pictures going back to the fifties!
