Vintage Gerber Building

The CTA has started an Instagram page of its vintage photos, including the one above of Wilson and Broadway in 1959. What we find interesting is that the proscenium arch at the corner was already gone by then. We hear rumors that the original arch is in storage and will be re-placed at the corner during the current reconstruction of the Gerber Building. Here's hoping!

  1. I'm curious about where that arch has been stored for over six decades. I imagine a "Raiders of the Lost Ark" type room and I get goose pimples.
