Circa 1900 Mt.Carmel Illinois

Postby Roger Hensley » Thu Aug 25, 2016 7:25 am

This view of the backshop of the Big Four at Mt.Carmel IL pre-dates me riding my bicycle behind this building in the late '40s enroute to deliver my Dad's lunch to the "Ready Track" at the roundhouse prior to his departing on a 'trip' to Lyons [Danville, IL]. Interesting that the crane operator is posing on the main beam.
