Rare Eastland disaster photos discovered in Tribune basement

The photographs capture the aftermath of one of Chicago’s worst disasters: rows of sheet-covered bodies inside a temporary morgue, two women crying while clutching a baby in a blanket, a Coast Guard crew hauling a woman out of the river, the Eastland flopped over in the water like a plastic toy in a bathtub, dozens of people atop its side, awaiting rescue.

“Goddess of the train” arrested after yelling at and slapping passengers. This cruel goddess, and a host of other characters seen on Chicago’s public transit are featured in the posted People of the CTA blog.

NOTE to out-of-towners, the Ventra references relate to Chicago’s glitch-filled roll out of a new transit debit card system that is supposed to replace the old fare cards.
