1 Thulin, Mrs. Frederick A. [Marjorie]; Editor. Glencoe Lights 100 Candles: 1869-1969.
Glencoe, Illinois: Glencoe Historical Society, (1969). 
Quarto, paperbound (stiff, stapled, blue & white photo. illus. wrappers), 54 pp. Very Good+, with lightly rubbed edges. Several Glencoe-related items laid-in. Illustrated throughout. From Foreword: After 100 years of existence many a town looks back on its glorious past...We in Glencoe are hard put to brag of our beginnings. A share of lake shipping, some logging, a stop-off for Chicagoans going to Green Bay, and a fine stand of horseradish -- honest, yes, but hardly the stuff of which to build nostalgia, loyalty, and tradition. Who would guess that on these earthen foundations would grow: the third wealthiest community in the world's richest country (1960 census); 3rd Woman's Club in Illinois, 61st in the U.S.; 1st Boy Scout troop west of the Alleghenies; 1st Illinois community to adopt city-manager system; one of the largest Reform Jewish congregations in the U.S.; more park space per capita than any other town in the U.S. (1950)... 
Price: 10.00 USD
