Dan O’Shea, author of the upcoming novel Penance, has put together a great post about some of the ghosts haunting Chicago. The post was inspired by the great-looking cover of Penance.
Dan focuses on two man-made disasters I was unfamiliar with: the 1903 fire at the “absolutely fireproof” Iroquois Theater, and the 1915 sinking of the SS Eastland, which was carrying 2,000 employees of the Western Electric Company to a company picnic.
Incredible stuff, well worth reading.
And here’s a high-resolution look at that killer cover.
