Chicago: A History and Forecast

A slight diversion today….

For some time I have had a book called Chicago: A History and Forecast.  It is from 1921, published by the Chicago Association of Commerce.  I’d given thought about scanning it – but it has already been done. See the following:

Last week on the radio program Fresh Air there was  piece on water waste.  On page 255 of Chicago: A History and Forecast,  Chicago is called on the carpet for water waste.   Their solution? Water meters. (Remember, the book was written in 1921!) It’s 2011 and we still don’t have a water meter system in Chicago.
