By Milwaukee County Historical Society.

From the 1930s through the 1980s, a shy and somewhat reclusive amateur photographer named Lyle Oberwise devoted much of his spare time to documenting his adopted hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Over a period of nearly fifty years, Oberwise amassed a collection of 43,000 color slides depicting the city's architecture and its people, as well as their daily lives and celebrations. The Milwaukee County Historical Society created this selection of 150 carefully chosen images to bring his work to life.

Hardcover, 168 pages.
