Scope and content

Likely created by Henry X Arenberg, this collection of Kodachrome slides documents local landmarks and civic life in Highland Park and Highwood, Illinois during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Many slides show Highland Park's downtown shopping and business district, Central Avenue, and document the area's changing landscape including the construction of medians and businesses. The slides contain images of houses, businesses, the annual July 4th parade, municipal buildings, the relocation of Highland Park Historical Society's Stupey Cabin and fire and police personnel. This collection also documents recreational activities such as camping and participation in Girl Scouts.
