Description

Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, with names like Hyde Park or Beverly carrying great significance and pride for their residents. And these neighborhoods are each hubs of education, entertainment, shopping—everyday life. In the 1940s and 50s, the common denominator among them was the streetcars of the Chicago Surface Lines, which criss-crossed and connected the city. Dispatch No. 8 covers 12 of CSL’s lines (including Broadway–State, Western, 63rd Street, and Lawrence) from 1945 through the end of streetcar service. Includes detailed narratives of the routes, 132 photos (24 of which are in color), and 3 color maps. A must-have!
