Chicago, Illinois, The L Running Down Wabash Avenue, c1907

Though many attempts had been made to develop an elevated train service in Chicago, a system was not fully implemented until the 1890s. During the 1893 Columbian Exposition, transportation was needed to bring tourists from downtown Chicago to the Jackson Park fairgrounds, seven miles away. The railway, which wound through the city, was expanded in subsequent years to become one of the most extensive elevated train systems in the world.
