I didn't even know there was a town named North Chicago.

This is an undated image (Postcard (?)) of Abbott Lab, located along Sheridan Rd approx 16th St in North Chicago, IL. (Found on the facebook page "Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad.") Orientation is looking S/E -- the railroad at left is the C&NW (now UP).
What I would really love to find is a photo of the C&NW stop known as "Abbott's Platform." If memory serves me correctly, it was located just north of Foss Park Ave (the present-day North Chicago Metra station is located south of Foss Park). The stop at Abbott's was eliminated with the opening of the present-day station (as it is defacto across-the-street from Abbott).
