Discover the Chicago “L” in all its grit and glory with Greg Borzo, author of The Chicago “L.”  The “L” has been running 24/7 for 125 years and its ridership continues to increase. See how it came to be and how it changed the region.  This PowerPoint presentation portrays the growth and development of Chicago’s most enduring icon.  Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 images and a couple of popular movie clips, Borzo’s rich historical presentation will inform and entertain. Travel through time. Mass transit never looked so good! 

Copies of Borzo’s book will be available for purchase and signing.
