Urban sociology is most directly associated with the “Chicago School.” The early 20th century urban sociologists of Chicago sought to create a science of society and to use Chicago as a social laboratory. Assembled in this album are hundreds of chronologically organized snapshots from urban "laboratories" all over the world. Take a moment to click through the pins and tell us about the sociological insights you uncover.

In 1950, a 4-year-old elephant named Tuffi was forced to ride a public monorail in Wuppertal, Germany. The animal was loaded aboard as a promotion for the Althoff Circus. This ride was supposed to be a lighthearted affair, but the world quickly learned that pachyderms and monorails simply do not mix. Forty feet above the Wupper River, Tuffi decided she had enough. The animal burst through a window and plummeted into the water below. — at Wuppertal Hauptbahnhof.
