Chicago and West Towns -- Part 1. Chicago Ave and Lake St.

Tonight historian William Shapotkin will take us on a trip over the one-time Chicago & West Towns Chicago and Lake St lines -- looking at both period streetcar and motor bus operations and contemporary PACE service over the same routes. Additionally, we will take a trip on the West Towns (and today's PACE) St Charles line, which replaced (in part) the Chicago Aurora and Elgin after that line's shut down on July 3, 1957.
