About this title:

Synopsis: Fascinating and comprehensive history of railroads in Chicago. Covers the early days before the railroads when there were only rough roads into Ft. Dearborn, the coming of the first railroad (the Galena & Chicago Union), the explosive growth of the railroads and the economic boom they created, the Pullman Strike, the history, architecture and character of each station, the freight industry, the interurban years, the growth of mass transit, and the struggles as railroads decayed, followed by the return of passenger traffic on Amtrak and the modernization spurred by deregulation and mergers. Includes charts that explain the complicated network of Chicago's interurbans, passenger railroad terminals, major freight yards, and switching, transfer and terminal railroads. Illustrated with both vintage and modern black and white photos. With bibliography. 338 pages with index.

Book Description Howell-North Books, La Jolla, CA, 1981. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: near fine. First printing. 4to; xiv, 338 pages, black cloth; short tear on rear panel. A thorough exploration, textually and pictorially, of the truism that the railoads "made" Chicago. "At a time when Boston and Philadelphia were already thriving metropolises, Chicago was nothing. There was no fort, there was no trading post, . The extensive collection of waters was unchecked by islands, and the scenery was uniform and monotonous, consisting of prairie and dismal swamp with here and there a few patches of scrubby woods - p.1.".
