Damen, from Below

The Blue Line is shown here from a street-level perspective, viewing the "L" structure at the Damen station.  Like so much else of the system this scene evidences rich heavy rail history.  The route from downtown to Logan Square has been mostly replaced by subway, but in this area three stations soldier on along the original route. 

This station was called "Robey" in an earlier era, and a branch to Humboldt Park, now long abandoned, split off a block or so outbound from here.
