Circa 1949. Steam locomotive in upper left. Esso bulk oil distributor in lower left.
I suppose that this entire scene is long gone. Paved over?
No, not yet. Most the buildings are gone but nothing so far. This engine is about where the steamer is in the photo. I am involved in a charrette this week with the developer and architects who are redeveloping the old Imperial Sugar property. UP is till holding onto this yard although the developer is negotiating to buy it.
