This photo shows a downtown train platform with
people on route to the fair for Chicago Day. Chicago Day was
the most attended day of the fair with over 600,000 visitors.
Trains were very popular in the 1800s as they were the fastest
to get around. Because of Chicago's central location in
the country, almost every train line connected to Chicago.
