Great photo, looks like an interesting place. Any date on that Roger? I'd guess 1930's maybe?

I got lucky on that - I was judging by the style of equipment. Actually I thought the "103" had something to do with a series of pics.

Thanks!

Second pic apparently taken from the coal tower. Sure wish they had color digital cameras back then! I suppose that's just a single track and a shopping center or apartments today.
