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.

Full-color reproductions of twenty of these posters are printed on the inside front and back covers of this coloring book, and line drawings based on the posters are included so that you can color them in. When you fill in the drawings, you might want to copy the original colors, or you might choose your own color combinations. The last three pages of the book are left blank so that you can create pictures of your own of your favorite museum, park or building.

48 pages with 20 images to color
Coloring pages are blank on the back so they can be cut out and displayed
