Arthur Gerber Train Stations: Uptown at Wilson and Broadway
One of the five new banners flying over Uptown this fall features the Uptown Station as conceived and designed by architect Arthur Gerber. Surfing tonight when I should have otherwise been working on a client project, I came across this Web site that discusses other stations designed by Gerber: Arthur U. Gerber, Chicago's Transit Architect.
What I wasn't aware of is that Gerber was also the architect of the McJunkin Building across the street. Somewhere around here I have a photo of what that looked like back in the day; it's a nighttime image, all lit up with ornamental lights. That must have been a sight! I'll try to dig it up sometime soon.
