The ambitious plan for the Kankakee & Urbana Traction.
It was to run from Urbana north to Kankakee, and from Urbana south to
Charleston. Connections were to be made at Kankakee to the Chicago &
Southern Traction Co. to continue north to Chicago. The C&S
had already been built from Kankakee to Chicago
when this map was published in a prospectus intended to sell preferred stock
to the public to finance K&UT construction.
