1955 Chicago Union Station Booklet: Cross-Roads of the Nation

This 1950s booklet was produced by the railroads that then owned Chicago Union Station to promote the terminal’s  modern amenities and luxurious cross-country trains. When the station was at its peak, it boasted everything from a women’s lounge and nursery to a jail. Today, this piece serves as an inspiration for both the transportation and Placemaking enhancements planned in the Chicago Union Station Master Plan.
