Aban/UP/C&NW Avondale Yard

The lone bridge in the upper-left corner used to be the yard lead to the land now occupied by and aggregates material yard and a U-Haul company. The rounded end at the west end of that property used to be the funnel of the Avondale Yard.
You can clearly see the fan-out of tracks in this 1938 aerial. On the north side of this aerial phto we see the ComEd yard for its Northwest Generating Station.
