The map shows the layout and stops of the five elevated train lines: Metropolitan W. S. Elevated, South Side Elevated, North Western Elevated, Chicago & Oak Park Elevated, and the Union Loop Elevated. The map also shows numerous parks in the city, including Jackson Park, Washington Park, Grant Park, Lincoln Park, and Garfield Park, as well as a detailed depiction of major roads, rivers, and surrounding towns.
