Rare historic photograph. Downtown Chicago Illinois circa 1908., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
This is Eddie K, Your host and photographer here at Eddie's Railfan Page.
On Saturday, April 23rd, 2011 from 1:00 until 3:00 PM, I will be hosting an event at the Eisenhower Public Library called "The Chicago Railfan Photo Slideshow"!
Aside from the hoistoric photos and personal railfan home movies I had taken many years ago, I will be showing a feature presentation entitled "When Chicago Rode The Streetcars. This is a short musical photo slideshow, set to authentic historic period music.
If You or someone You know grew up in Chicago Illinois prior to the end of CTA electric streetcar service in 1958, then You will enjoy seeing these historic images of Chicago the way it once looked.
It will be a fun event, and We hope to see You there.
