Comprehensive history of the electric street railways that provided transportation for most Chicagoans for over fifty years.

It also had a large fleet of buses and trolley coaches. This book provides a detailed look at every aspect of the CSL, including descriptions of each class of cars and each route. Covers MOW equipment, car barns, paint schemes, corporate rivals, and employee training. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With maps, equipment rosters, timetables, and schematic diagrams. End papers show system maps. 496 pages with index. There is a Supplement to this volume, printed in 1979.
