Overview

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."
