ComEd Taylor Street Substation

This was the use of the land after the Pennsylvania Freight House was torn down. (I'm still working on the freight house posting.) It would seem that ComEd could have figured out how to use some rooms in that big, substantial bulding for their equipment and then rent the rest of the building for other uses.

I've noticed that the substation shows up in the background of some pictures of cab units going to/from the Chicago Union Station. So this topic gives me an excuse to save these neat photos.
