History

In the 1950s, the Chicago Transit Authority explored a number of innovative ways to maintain operations and upgrade service on a limited budget. A co-operative public--private agreement between the CTA and Marshall Field and Company department store led to the remodeling of the inner loop station at Randolph and Wabash in Chicago’s Loop in 1955.
