Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge 1965 and 2014

And then I remembered that I also took a very similar photo when I was waiting in line to pay the toll in the same booth in February 2014. At that time, my wife and I were traveling to Detroit. Here is my photo:

The curious thing about these photos, besides the visual change in 49 years, is that I was apparently going to the same toll booth that the author of the old photo. A precious find!
