Gray Goose Air Lines and the Edgewater Beach Hotel

"Grey" Goose Air Lines advertisement, 1930s.

Of the many comforts offered to Jazz Age/Prohibition era guests of the Edgewater Beach Hotel, the Chicago to Gulf Coast service via Gray Goose Air Lines had to rank with the most exclusive. Passengers were apparently shuttled from the hotel to Chicago’s Municipal Airport (now known as Midway) where Gray Goose operated at the time. The flights heading due south took seven hours to reach the Gulf Coast, an impressive amount of time for the period.
