    Caption: "Illinois Central Entrance to the Heart of Chicago; Soldier Field, Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium in the foreground". From text: "Central Station, on the Boulevard System, has an incomparable situation on the lake shore. Just off Michigan Boulevard, Chicago's most imposing thoroughfare, at Roosevelt Road, it places all of Chicago within easy reach by automobile. It is convenient to the down-town hotels, the theatres, steamship docks, and other places of public interest. The nearest street car line and nearest elevated station (Roosevelt Road) are at Wabash Avenue and Roosevelt Road, only one and one-half blocks west. Motor bus lines, passing the entrance to Central Station, provide convenient service to all parts of the city over Chicago's famous boulevards. less
