The Darker Side of Taylor Street

bertha_warshovsky_taylor_street_firebugSometimes in research, you find a LOT of wildly different stories turning up in the same general stretch of road. West Taylor from Halsted to Ashland is one of those. From the Devil Baby Scare of 1913 to public hangings in the 1850s, and with tales of gangsters, arsonists, misers, and nuns who allegedly turned to stone in between, The Darker Side of Taylor Street is a mile long walk to remember, full of history you won’t hear anywhere else!
