North Shore Line Electroliner train northbound on the Chicago L at Wabash Avenue.

The cross-street here is Harrison Street; today this intersection is very different due to the realignment of the L and the presence of Columbia College.


Date unknown; the car on the left appears to be a Plymouth Savoy from the 1957-1959 series.

I dunno, same old shit, just a new day. [shrugs] Thought I would have a pleasant weekend, but work is following me home again.

Hm, oddly enough, I can relate to that.
