Chicago Examiner, August 16, 1913
Chicago’s first Broadway car ran through the loop district through the La Salle street tunnel, up Clark street, and out Broadway. It was the first evidence of the city’s 567 varieties of new street names. The car, with no sign save the unwonted “Broadway” displayed, swung around the loop at the alcoholic hour of 11:30, just when the most people wanted a car.
