Remarks & Notes 
My understanding was that if railroad property were used for railroad purposes it was taxed at a much lower rate thus the picture shows how the IC/ICG held on to some extremely valuable property (between Michigan Ave. and Lake Shore Drive) that eventually became an extension of Grant Park.
