Beaux-Arts Stacked

Beaux-Arts Stacked, originally uploaded by swanksalot.

Smokestack of the Chicago & North Western Railway Powerhouse.

The Powerhouse remains today as the best-surviving building associated with the Chicago and North Western Railway, one of the city’s most prominent historic railroads. The building is a utilitarian but grandly-scaled example of the Beaux-Arts architectural style, noteworthy for its giant round-arched windows and fine cream-colored brick walls laid to resemble rusticated stone. The Powerhouse provided electricity and steam heat to the original terminal, standing passenger cars, and other nearby railroad facilities for over 50 years.
