Chicago Coloring Book
During the 1920s and 1930s, the Chicago Transit Authority hired many talented graphic artists to create posters featuring parks, beaches, museums, universities, and other interesting locations inside and outside the Chicago city limits. These posters encouraged people to use public transit—called the elevated lines or "L"—to travel to these destinations. The posters rarely depicted the "L" itself; instead, they displayed colorful and exciting images of buildings, cultural events, and outdoor activities. The original posters from which the drawings were created for this coloring book are reproduced on the inside covers, in full color—in case you want to replicate their colors.
