Another of my Dad's (Roderick O'Connor) photos of Chicago circa 1947-48. Rock Island commuter coach yard in Chicago.
Bob Lalich This view looks south from Roosevelt Road at the Rock Island commuter coach yard.
So it would be the yard tracks on the east (right) side of this photo. The tracks on the west side are B&OCT tracks servicing Grand Central Station. Some of the fill of the original course of the South Branch has yet to be developed.
