Sat., March 13: ““Terminal City: Chicago’s Passenger Stations in The Golden Era of Rail” by David Clark

March 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Terminal City: Chicago’s Passenger Stations in the Golden Era of Rail

From after the Civil War until the rise of commercial jet travel in the early 1960s, anyone wishing to travel long distances across the North American continent likely did so via passenger rail. It is also likely that these folks passed through Chicago’s passenger rail stations on their journeys. Chicago was the gateway between east and west and home to six large stations serving the needs of a majority of the long-haul rail companies. This program will give us a glimpse of the experiences of the passengers who passed through those terminals– each of which had its own unique look and “personality.” We will see that Chicago was indeed the Gateway City for anyone traveling across the country in the era of travel by rail.

David Clark is an award-winning author of three books and dozens of magazine and journal articles focusing on local Chicago and Illinois history. His book Route 66 in Chicago won an award for Best Non-Fiction Book from the Illinois Women’s Press Association. Doing business as Windy City Road Warrior, David offers Power Point presentations on a variety of historical subjects, and he is a tour guide offering walking tours in the Chicago Loop featuring architecture, history, and transportation.
