Chicago The Entrance to the Chicago River, looking West, in 1876



It has been said that Chicago was a port long before it became a city; that is true, if one considers the city’s position at the confluence of the Chicago River and Lake Michigan and as a waterway for the Indians who delivered pelts from the backwoods by canoe to trade for finished goods brought in along the lake to the first settlers.
