Over an Alley

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.
