Wikipedia page about the Chicago City Railway

The Chicago City Railway was to become, for a while, the largest and most profitable cable car system in the world. Counter to some people's expectations, the cable cars did not suffer much from the elements, and the harsher Chicago climate was no problem for them.

The Chicago City Railway was succeeded in 1913 by the Chicago Surface Lines.
