Galewood Yard of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad,1939. LOC
A Jack Delano picture. I suspect that the box cars are lined up between two freight houses.
Dave Leucinger: You can see the transition from the older, wooden box cars to the newer steel cars.
Sam LaBanco: Near the Central Ave. bridge, would like to see a picture of that.
Their was quite a bit of industry around and near the yard.

Judging from the satellite image, the yard was at grade level so most of the land has been repurposed as an industrial park.
