A railway encircles thirty-five blocks of shops, offices, and hotels in Chicago, June // Photograph by James L. Stanfield, National Geographic This is such a cool shot - too bad the el trains don't look like that anymore!
~ I LOVE this picture! My dad, uncles, some of my cousins all worked for the railroad. At that time it was known as Chicago Northwestern line (C NW), then it was sold to Metra. I miss the old yellow green color scheme.
