From Swede Hollow to Arlington Hills: The Immigrant Past and Present of Payne Avenue (Walking Tour)
May 22, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join labor historians Dave Riehle and Peter Rachleff for a walking tour of Payne Avenue. We will focus on the street’s role as a center of immigrant working-class life, from the Swedes, Italians, and Germans of the 19th century to the Hmong, Mexicans, and Salvadorians of the 21st century. The tour begins on Payne Avenue, across the street from Yarusso Bros Italian Restaurant, and proceeds about 11/2 miles to the East Side Freedom Library, where refreshments and restrooms will be available. Must register online.
(Please note, maximum attendance is 25)
