Old Dan Ryan line photos found on Flickr

The following photographs were found on Flick posted by davidwilson1949 of scenes of the CTA Dan Ryan line (now we call it the Red Line) taken in March 1970.
This was near 75th Street.
 This is 95th Street!

This pic was taken near 69th Street!

Finally! I know this is outside of the current boundaries of the ward, but here's a scene below from 63rd Street.
It's interesting to look at the Dan Ryan line when it was practically brand new and before these stations got work done in the last decade or so!

ALSO: Check out this vid I posted last year that showed some scenes along the Dan Ryan route. The footage taken was also from the 1970s!
