Straßenverkehr und soziale Sichtbarkeit: Das Massenmedium Straße in Chicago 1900–1930 by David Sittler
- Book Review
A prime example is Peter Norton’s article on changes in U.S. city streets during this period, predominantly in Chicago, resulting in the hegemony of car-traffic at the cost of all other street uses and users: “Street Rivals: Jaywalking and the Invention of the Motor Age Street” (2007). In the final chapter, Sittler turns to the work of the Chicago School of Sociology in order to link its classic studies with his attempts to grasp essential phenomena from the visual mass of a street. Other authors have used historical photographs also to analyze such practices, for example, Franck Cochoy, Johan Hagberg, and Roland Canu in “The Forgotten Role of Pedestrian Transportation in Urban Life: Insights from a Visual Comparative Archaeology (Gothenburg and Toulouse, 1875–2011)” (2015).
