Update: A commenter writes "Chicago streetcar ticket? You sure? That looks a lot like a regular, but old, paper bus transfer they used to hand out." Loerzel suggests the ticket comes from circa 1935, based on the book he found it in. Assuming that's true, I'm guessing the Chicago Surface Lines notation means that it's for one of the trolley buses on display here.
