Photo exhibit celebrates history of Chicagos transportation system
on Monday,December 14,2009 22:12
Chicago is well revered for its architecture, deep dish pizza and the second busiest international airport in the world. The city has long been accommodating for travelers of both foreign and domestic origin, thanks largely to the 1909 Plan of Chicago.
On the 100-year celebration of the sweeping city plan which widened streets, built parks, created a new railroad and harbor facility and invested in civic buildings throughout chi-town, the Chicago Transit Authority will be hosting a photo exhibit honoring the plan''s co-author, Daniel Burnham.
The exhibit, which will be running daily through the month, features 30 black and white historical photos detailing the continued evolution of the Windy City. The photos have been donated by local shutterbug and author Greg Borzo.
Also featured in the Centennial exhibit are documents and notes from Burnham, and co planner Edward H. Bennett relating their experiences on the extensive renovation project.
The 1909 plan helped to establish Chicago as a center of industry and culture in the northeastern united States, and helped reshape the concept of city planning and architecture on a grand scale.
