The Harrison Curve consisted of two extremely tight
turns that took South Side trains from over Wabash a short stretch
west, and then south again to run above an alley. An easier approach
now handles traffic through here. One of the two
old curves is in view, as are the remnants
straight ahead of the long-gone stub to Congress Terminal.
The unusually colored CNA Building stands out
behind the train,
even on this very hazy day.
A block west of here the Red Line is approaching downtown from the
South Side in its
subway under State St.
