South Side Industrial Landmark to Come Tumbling Down

If you’re a shutterbug, it’s worth taking the trip down to 104th and Harvard (CTA buses 8A and/or 103) to get a picture of the pump house.  It was built four-stories tall to handle the massive machines of a century ago.  Today, though most of that volume is empty since modern pumps are much smaller.

And if you’re into Chicago history trivia, this building’s address used to be 104th and Stewart Avenue.   The address was changed to 104th and Princeton when the railroad came through the neighborhood and erased Stewart.  It’s an unusual case of a railroad not being there first.

    South Side Industrial Landmark to Come Tumbling Down
    You may have seen it, but not really noticed it, as you motored along I-57 past Chicago's Fernwood neighborhood. But that's OK, because soon the giant chimney that rises high above the Chicago Department of Water's Roseland Pumping Station will be gone. The bad news is that the neighborhood will lose a navigational touchstone.
