Born and raised in Chicago. Did I know there was a cable car system in the city? Nope. I know now and it was one of the largest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
How the system was developed, operated and eventually gave way to the trolley system is well covered. Interesting story about
Charles Yerkes, the business leader behind the transit systems.
I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the history of Chicago's cable car system.
