Our Next Program:
Chicago Rapid Transit in the 1950s and 60s by Ken Spengler
Although the rapid transit system has seen continual changes from its start in 1892 until the present, the ’40s through the ’60s brought about many interesting developments – the subways, the modern cars, several abandonments, center reservations in expressways, etc. Longtime MCERA Ken Spengler will offer up a slice of history that our older members will remember and the younger ones should find interesting.
Ken will concentrate on both the lines and route changes. We will see a lot of material on the Lake Street elevation and the changeover from Garfield Park to Congress. Come join us for what promises to be a very informative and enjoyable program.
Admission is free for current CERA members. There will be a $5.00 Admission charge for non-members.
