Horse Power for Transportation       1| 2| 3| 4| 5|

(Page 4 of 5)

Horse power was the traditional means of transportation on city streets. For a parade in 1915, the mayor of Chicago and the Governor of Illinois road horseback ahead of a mounted police unit (DN-0064511). The statue Fountain Girl, built in 1895, continued to provide drinking water for teams of horses in 1911 (DN-0056947). However, change was coming. For example, in 1912, gasoline-powered trucks delivered the huge rolls of paper for printing the Chicago Daily News (DN-0009552) and in 1915 the Chicago post office displayed its first gasoline-powered vehicles to replace horses for the local delivery of mail (DN-0065426).
