After nearly fifty years from its first publication, this paper proposes an analysis of the author Anselm Strauss, known for his Grounded Theory, but whose work as an urban sociologist remains mostly unknown. His urban remarks outline urban imagery, a recurrent symbolization produced by individuals in their interaction with urban spaces during everyday life.
