Very attractive pass! No. 180, issued to CE Noble of the Michigan Central Railroad. Signed by general superintendent Dunlap. Many vignettes: tiny train, train crossing bridge, and ovals for 4 states (Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan) in corners. Lith. by Ed Mendel, Chicago. Very good condition. The Chicago & North Western Railway, created during the late 1850s by the merger of several small railroads in Illinois and Wisconsin, was led during its early years by William B. Ogden, Chicago's first mayor. In 1864, the Chicago & North Western absorbed the Galena & Chicago Union, which in 1848 had been the city's first railroad. Between 1872 and 1910, under the leadership of Marvin Hughitt, the length of track in the road's rail network grew from about 1,400 miles to nearly 10,000 miles.
