Dearborn Station, a building that remains largely intact to this day (minus the ornate structure above the clock), was constructed in 1885 as one of several transportation hubs that served the various railroad companies in operation across Chicago.

This print, issued in the November 7th issue of Harper’s Weekly from that year, shows the new building and its luxurious interior. Ornate ironwork can be seen around the elaborate awning that shaded the crowded sidewalks, while carriages and pedestrians crowd the street.
