This is a scarce c.1929 pocket map of Chicago, Illinois issued by the Chicago Motor Club. This street map covers Chicago from Glenview and Wilmette south as far as Riverdale, Robins and Crestwood and from Lake Michigan west to Cook County Airport. This highly detailed map notes streets, house numbers, parks, airports, townships, villages, tourist camps, clubs, piers, rivers, lakes, and transportation lines. A street index in included on the right hand side of the map.Selected as a railway hub for most of the American Midwest, Chicago underwent a boom period and was the focus of the world's attention in 1893 during the Chicago World's Fair, or as it is better known, the Columbian exposition. The map identifies Jackson Park, the location of the fair. It also illustrates the Chicago Park System. The 'Park System,' designed by Olmstead prodigy William Le Baron Jenny in 1871, refers to a network of parks and garden boulevards intended to embrace the city in arms of foliage. Many of these parks and boulevards remain today.Although this map is not dated, the address of the Chicago Motor Club, at 66 East South Water St. and Telephone FRAnklin 1818, help date this map to 1929. This map was copyrighted by the Hearne Brothers and published by Fred Wild Co. for the Chicago Motor Club.
