So many different ways to get to the same place

I've got a work trip to Chicago this month, and it's gotten me thinking about travel.  While I love seeing new places, I don't like the hassle and stress of the airport--which has led me to romanticize other modes of travel.  I'm sure that traveling by horse drawn carriage, or train, or cart, was as much of a hassle as our modern way of doing it, but that doesn't mean I won't look at pictures of traveling in a slower time (all images from Shorpy).
