Chicago Passenger Terminal, aerial photo2778 viewsThis view of the C. P.T. looks north in the days when small airplanes could fly at will. The date is probably the early 1950's. The Madison St. entrance to the Terminal is visible. The Lake Street elevated crosses the throat of the tracks near the end of the train shed. While most details are too small, the overview shows the layout of the tracks and the path of the Chicago River. C&NW Trans Co. photo, submitted by Joe Pierson.
