A Real Green House

This is the Ashland stop on the Green (and Pink) CTA lines. It's one of the oldest stations in the CTA system and certainly a unique one. It seems that there were four stations built in a Queen Anne style. Only two remain, this one (in its original location) and the station at the Garfield Park Conservatory/Central Park el stop (which was relocated from the Homan Avenue stop).

Love this. I've never seen it before.

Hold up your hands to block out everything around the station and you get a feel for what things must have looked like a hundred or more years ago. Minus the smell of the horse manure, of course!
