Union Station Train Sheds...

There was a time when there were many train sheds in Chicago. They, like much of the facilities for passenger rail service, have either disappeared or taken a back seat to our modern world. This was taken from Jackson to Van Buren.

Looking back towards Jackson. I doubt these are very old, but they probably date back to the 1920's

The view as seen by most ordinary pedestrians. Unlike myself, they probably walk by everyday, and don't give this a second glance. I on the other hand, see it as an unusual bit of our past which still exists. Note: the old post office is in the background on the right. This was a much more convenient location than the current one is now. At least for those of us who do not own cars.
