Magnets picture three 1926-1935 Chicago scenes as interpretted by linocut artist, Todros Geller (1889-1949) -- simulating fabric imprinting.  Size each: 2-3/4" x 3-1/2" 

The writeup about Todros Geller on Wikipedia includes a wealth of information.

I found the illustrations in a 1937 edition of Fun Land Tsu Land.  The book is in Yiddish and I couldn't find an English translation so selected those that research elsewhere identified as Chicago scenes. Pictured:

  • "Chicago Towers" 1937
  • "Maxwell Street"  1926
  • "Italian Quarter"  1935
