Description

View of Chicago, Cook County, I.L., 1860.

This aero-view print of Chicago, Illinois was drawn and published around 1860. Chicago was a mere trading post near the banks of Lake Michigan in the 1830's. Its transportation importance began in the 1840's with the building of the Illinois and Michigan Canal which connected the Mississippi River with Lake Michigan.

The Galena & Chicago Union Railway also enabled enhanced shipping of the many agricultural products of the region. Cattle, hogs, grain and other farming products were abundantly traded as well as agriculturally dependent branch manufactures such as milling, slaughtering, packing, rendering, soap and candle making, tanning, brewing and distilling.

The map from the 1860's illustrates Chicago’s business core and piers with shipping traffic.
