The Lake Street Transfer station was a rapid transit station on the
Chicago "L" that linked its Lake Street Elevated with the Logan Square
branch of its Metropolitan West Side Elevated Railroad from 1913 to
1951. The Lake Street and Metropolitan were both constructed in the
1890s by different companies. The two companies owning the lines, along
with two others, unified their operations in the early 1910s; as part of
the merger, the Lake Street's owner had to close its nearby station on
Wood Street and build a new one to form a transfer with the
Metropolitan. This transfer station had a double-decked construction
(depicted), with the Metropolitan's infrastructure crossing over the
Lake Street. This arrangement continued until the Dearborn Street subway
opened on February 25, 1951, replacing the Logan Square branch in the
area and leading to the station's closure. The site would eventually
serve as the junction of the modern Pink Line to the Green Line.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
I am grateful to our people, grateful to our multi-million army
of volunteers and citizens who do care, who can collect and get
everything necessary. We have become one. Our journalists and media are
a united front fighting against lies and panic. We have become one
family. There are no more strangers among us. Ukrainians today are all
fellows. Ukrainians have sheltered Ukrainians, opened their homes and
hearts to those who were forced to flee the war. We withstand all
threats, shelling, cluster bombs, cruise missiles, kamikaze drones,
blackouts, and cold. We are stronger than that. It was a year of
resilience. A year of care. A year of bravery. A year of pain. A year of
hope. A year of endurance. A year of unity. The year of invincibility.
The furious year of invincibility. Its main result is that we endured.
We were not defeated. And we will do everything to gain victory this
