Chicago Tidbits, Part 1, The Loop

“The Loop” - that’s the name of an old elevated train in Chicago. The steel construction looks kind of old and rotten but someway cosy, though.
The entrances made of stainless steel were by far the most modern part. I liked the clear destinction between “inside” and “outside”. It was like entering another small world. Cross the stainless steel door and you’re in.
Because my hotel was in the middle of downtown there was no need to take The Loop. I’m sad that I didn’t do it just for fun.
I don’t know why but old technical stuff fascinates me far more than new highly sophisticated things.

  1. I like the look of these ticket barriers too. The array of lights is fascinating. Did you get a frontal shot
