its early history, Chicago had floods frequtly, especially the sprg, g the streets so muddy that people, horses, d carts got stuck. old joke that was popular at the te t sometg like this: A is stuck up to his waist a muddy Chicago street. Asked if he needs help, he replies, "No, tks. I've got a good horse under me."
The city pner decided to build underground drage (排水) syst, but there sply wasn't ough differce bet the height of the ground level d the water level. The only two options were to lower the Chicago River or raise the city.
eer ned Ellis Chesbrough convced me the city that it had no choice but to build the pipes above ground d t cover t with dirt. This raised the level of the city's streets by as much as 12 feet.
This of course created a new pro: dirt practically buried the first floors of every bug Chicago. Bug owners were faced with a choice: either ge the first floors of their bugs to basts, d the second stories to floors, or hoist the tire bugs to meet the new street level. Small wood-fre bugs could be lifted fairly easily. But what about large, heavy structures like Tront Hotel, which was a six-story brick bug?
That's where George Pu e . He had developed some housovg skills successfully. To lift a big structure like the Tront Hotel, Pu would place thousds of jackscrews (螺旋千斤顶) eath the bug's foundation. One was assed to operate each section of roughly 10 jackscrews. At Pu's sal each turned his jackscrew the se ount at the se te, thereby raisg the bug slowly d evly. Astonisgly, the Tront Hotel stay op durg the tire operation, d y of its guests 't ev notice ytg was happg. Some people like to say that every pro has a solution. But Chicago's early history, every eerg solution sed to create a new pro. Now that Chicago's waste water was drg tly to the Chicago River, the city's next step was to the polluted river.
