The First Color-Coded Boardwalk Walkways, 20th Century
It took more than 50 years for people to finally start walking in a color-coded way, but the first boardswalk was completed in Chicago in 1893.
Today, the first color-coded boardswalk is seen as one of the great triumphs of the 20th century.
It was built on a public street in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, the original site of the city’s famous Lincoln Park.
In addition to being the world’s first public street, Wicker is also home to the iconic Lincoln Park Art Museum.
The boardswalk, the longest and most ambitious of its kind in the world, was designed by Chicago-based architects Charles M. Purdy and Joseph B. P. Kline, who also designed the iconic Charles Lindbergh Park.
The design was initially intended to be just a short walk, but it was eventually extended to accommodate buses and cars.
The walkways had a unique, triangular shape that was also ideal for accommodating buses, and a series of metal steps connected the two sides of the boardwalk to each other, creating a new, more traditional, layout for the city.
It also added more space to accommodate cars, allowing pedestrians to pass along the boardwalks in the middle of the street.
This layout is still in use today, and has become a staple of many urban areas.
However, the walkways were designed to be permanent.
As such, the city was required to remove the original boardswalk in order to complete the project.
Today the walkway remains, but is only visible by people walking along the street who do not want to walk through the original structure.
The City of Chicago was able to complete this project thanks to the city of Chicago’s extensive partnership with Purdy & Kline.
The two architects were also responsible for a number of other major projects in Chicago, including the new Lincoln Park Aquarium, which opened in 2017.
