CTA Streetcar in front of Wrigley Field, 1957.

CTA streetcar № 7222, ("Green Hornet"), in front of Wrigley Field. The Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (aka "Milwaukee Road"), and the predecessor to the CTA, the Chicago Surface Lines, ran on the tracks adjacent to Wrigley Field. They were nicknamed Green Hornet streetcars because of their speed and the Chicago Surface Lines’ green paint job. 1957 was the last year of this streetcar service. (7-14-1957)
