A train twists toward the camera from the Van Buren
segment of the Loop and onto
that over Wells in this scene. Many years ago this corner had its own junction.
Before the Congress Expressway project in the 1950s, Garfield Park and Douglas
Park trains continued straight west over Van Buren (photo perspective
of left to right). Interurban cars of the Chicago, Aurora and Elgin
also passed that
way. Earlier still, trains from the Logan Square "L" also joined
and left the Loop here.
