Sinopsis: Fascinating history of the substantial and varied railroad stations that once existed throughout Chicago. The design and scale of train stations expressed the wealth and power of their communities during the Railroad Age and Chicago in the 1920s had more than 12 terminals and 462 elevated railway and commuter stations in an amazing array of designs. The competition amongst railroads produced innumerable combinations of contemporary taste, from Victorian Italianate to Spanish Mission style. This book traces the history, architecture, owners, and technological innovations of over 150 of Chicago's stations many long gone but still visually enthralling in rare vintage photos. Illustrated throughout with both vintage and new black and white photos as well as drawings and diagrams. 425 pages with indexes.
