CTA Surface System History presented by the Illinois Railway Museum

These photos are available thanks to the family of R. Hill. The Museum was able to procure a large quantity of R. Hill's photographs featuring CTA trolley buses and are making them available for viewing via this website. Some photos are carefully documented (usually the ones that include times), while others have nothing more than a date associated with them. We have done our best to identify the locations and bus numbers for each photo.

Eventually these photos will be organized by route once a sufficient number of them have been uploaded. For now, enjoy simply looking through them in a random order.

Due to concerns expressed by some about rampant piracy of photos on the internet, restrictions have been placed on posting photos from the Museum's collection here. The requirements set forth state that they must be low res and watermarked. We apologize to the vast majority of our patrons who only use this site as intended, for personal enjoyment and information gathering.
