Chicago Union Station takes a deep dive into the innovative history of this famous depot in the Windy City. Created during a time when Chicago was known as the "Railroad Capital of the World," the iconic transportation hub greatly affected the changing city and the greater Midwest region of the United States. Railroad historian Fred Ash uses detailed illustrations along with both black-and-white and color photographs to provide historically accurate accounts of the stakeholders, legislators, industry workers, and immigrants impacted by the development and evolution of Chicago's Union Station.
