Chicago: City on the Move

A Unique Look at Chicago through the Photo Archives of the City’s Public Transportation System

There is a city treasure that has never before come to light. For close to 150 years, photographers have documented Chicago’s public transportation system. They photographed the building of the city’s famous “L” lines and subway tunnels, and pictured the streetcars that glided through city streets. For the first time, these photos in the Chicago Transit Authority archive are available in Chicago: City on the Move. The book shows the city in a new way. It presents a history of the Chicago through mass transportation. But this is not a book of nostalgia. Although the photos are decades old, the subject is very much alive. Take a trip on the Blue Geese, the Green Hornets and the Old Reds. This is your chance to see Chicago as it was and better understand Chicago as it is. This is a book for people who love transportation, who love photography and who love the city on the move.
