I found a great book at the library called Chicago, City on the Move by Williams, Cahan and Moffat. It's 250 pages of prewar Chicago. There's some stuff I've never seen before. The ones I find most facinating are ones of transit lines being run out into flat open prarie - the very beginings of some neighborhoods. There's a picture of 79th and Cornell in 1915, and the land is just empty.

There's also some great pictures of subway construction.
