Day Eight - The Commuter
Pictured above you'll find one of the signs on the platform for the Damen Avenue Blue Line stop. The photo faces southeast towards the Loop where the elevated rail system tacks along the diagonally positioned Milwaukee Avenue. I wait for the L right next to this sign nearly every weekday with Lauren. Some people, when referring to Chicago's elevated train system, will write "El" instead of "L." While that seemingly makes sense, "El" being a shortened version of "elevated," those people are wrong. It's "L." Even the CTA refers to the train as the "L." If we're going to abbrev. let's tk. it all th. wa. Yrs trly, DPG.
