Cermak-McCormick Place Opens

Image by cta web
An opening ceremony was held by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and CTA President Forrest Claypool earlier today to celebrate the opening of the brand new Cermak-McCormick Place station on the Green Line! This new station serves McCormick Place, the growing area near historic Motor Row and provide a crucial additional transportation option for the Near South Side.

The station, with entrances on both sides of Cermak and at 23rd Street has two elevators, an island platform (featuring full canopy coverage, heaters, and benches), bright lighting, security cameras, new static and digital signage, a Divvy station and plenty of bicycle parking.

The station also has art in the form of eight, 4’x12′ panels by Bronzeville-native artist Hebru Brantley who casts his own comic book-style characters to celebrate the nearby Motor Row Lankmark District. Motor Row once had the nation’s largest concentration of car dealerships and was also home to the Chess Records recording studio and the Chicago Defender newspaper.

The new station, part of billion in transit investments announced by Mayor Emanuel since 2011, is located near the intersection of Cermak Road and State Street will provide much-needed access to rapid transit for Near South Side residents and businesses. It fills in a major gap in CTA service that has existed in the 2.5 mile stretch between Roosevelt and 35th/IIT stations since the previous Cermak station at that location was demolished in 1977.

Bellaire Museum of Computer History Opens

Bellaire, TX (PRWEB) June 14, 2007

Bellaire, TX, has a new museum with displays of historical computer components. The history of electronic digital computers goes back to 1941, and that of microcomputers to 1975. Now, students and enthusiasts in the Houston area have a resource featuring many of the machines and systems which made their marks in the early days of the computer business.

“We’re very pleased to make these systems available in our display cases, and for discussion. One of my favorites is the Compaq luggable. It was one of the first PC clones, and really put Houston on the map in the computer industry,” said Mike Angwin, the founder of the museum and its principal benefactor.

The museum is located at 5302 Bellaire Blvd., in Bellaire, just outside the West Loop 610. It is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. For small parties of up to six people, it is free. For large groups of seven or more, please make special arrangements.

Featured in the museum are the modem from an early Texas bulletin board system, 1986; one of the first Compaq portables from 1982; a Radio Shack TRS-80 with eight inch floppy disk drive, 1981; an old IBM disk drive from circa 1973; a Super Elf microcomputer from Quest, 1978. The museum also has one of the early acoustically coupled modems from the 1970s rated for 100 baud.

“We’ve already received several pieces of donated equipment in addition to our original showcase items. We’d be delighted to hear from people with older model microcomputers who don’t want to throw away their memories. Please call first, though, as we have limited display space,” museum manager Jay Hall commented.

Additional information on the museum is available at the store, or by calling 713-664-0002. Ask for Mike or Jay.
