Cancel for March 31: Lake Shore and Michigan Southern Railway


FREIGHT OFFICE
L.S. & M.S. Ry
MAR  31   1900
SO.  CHICAGO
ILLS.


1891 Route map for the LS&MS.  Click on image to get an easier to read version.  The image shows why a south Chicago freight office might be very important for the railroad, since the LS&MS' eastern
freight passed thru south Chicago whether going in or out of the city.  I am not quite sure why, but the map prominently shows the Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago, and St. Louis Railroad to the south of the LS&MS.  The CCC&StL was also known as "The Big Four".
