About this Item

176 p. The South Shore Line (electric trains and connecting motor coach lines) built in the early 20th Century and running from Chicago to Indiana and Michigan along the south shore of Lake Michigan was unique in its technology. However, it encountered serious financial difficulties and nearly failed more than once. The genius of Samuel Insull revived its fortunes, and at the time this book was written, the South Shore was still in business and was the last operating interurban railway system in the country. B&w maps and photos; brown leatherette hard cover, near fine with small bumps at lower spine; dust jacket rubbed at extremities, with small chips and closed tears. Bookseller Inventory # 01WM-LK06
