Lifting the Lid in the Loop

Lifting the Lid in the Loop was given to the Library by the Chicago Tunnel Company and Chicago Warehouse and Terminal Company. The purpose of the publication is "to acquaint the public with the property and the benefits derived by shippers and the city at large." In the introduction reference is made to the freight tunnels role in creating "The City Beautiful" by hauling "thousands of yards of excavated earth, refuse and the water's edge and there made to push back the inroads of the mighty Lake Michigan and to form the foundation of Grant Park and the new Field Museum."
