Synopsis

Whether by road, rail, water, or sky ...people come to Chicago. In droves. In waves of migration and immigration. For work and for play. But how do they get to Chicago? Terminal Town answers this question with a fast-moving history of Chicago's many passenger transportation terminals. These have, for generations, served as defining features of the city's cosmopolitan character. Showcasing great icons of transportation, including Chicago's Union Station, Dearborn Station, and Midway and O'Hare airports, as well as lesser-known and long-gone terminals throughout the metropolitan region, this book illustrates why the Windy City so richly deserves its reputation as America's premier travel hub. Featuring 48 stations and terminals through short narrative, 215 color photographs, and 20 custom maps, Terminal Town provides a fascinating portrait of the city's famously complex and constantly changing transportation system.
