A few weeks ago, I almost fell over this thing when I was backing up to look at/photograph one of the Cardinal Banners. I didn't know what it was at the time. It says "State Street That Great Street" and looks a little like a hitching post. I know we have mounted police that patrol the Loop, but they usually don't tie up their horses. A few days ago I was in the area and saw one in use: It's a single bike rack.
