CITY OF CHICAGO MAPS
In the Research Center, please request a map by its author/title, category, date, and its number (if there is one).
This is a collection of maps relating to the city of Chicago, or the area that was to become Chicago. Some maps include insets of more than one time period and this is indicated in the Contents note. Maps often show subdivision of areas into lots and often relate to real estate promotion and sales. Streets, railroad lines, parks, and other local features often are indicated. Maps may relate to an area before or after its annexation to Chicago. Maps sometimes include insets showing the relationship of an area to the whole city of Chicago or to the Loop and occasionally suburban areas.
In addition to the geographical names in folder titles, maps relate to the following categories: annexations and accretions, aviation, bicycles, bridges, buses, cemeteries, Century of Progress World's Fair, Chicago, Cook and adjacent counties, Fire of 1871, Fort Dearborn, highways and roads, historical and pictorial, Illinois, industries, institutions, parking, parks, political and administrative, population and sociology, portage, postal, prehistory and geology, railroads, real estate, river and harbor, stockyards, street railroads and rapid transit, topography, transportation, wards, waterworks and sanitation and the World's Columbian Exposition. Please consult the online finding aid to identify the map(s) related to each category.
