Gulf, Mobile & Ohio
Chicago, Illinois (Brighton Park Crossing)
July 27, 1971

The former Chicago & Alton genealogy of the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio's Illinois trackage is obvious in this slide shot at Brighton Park Crossing in Chicago, as the Alton was under Baltimore & Ohio ownership from 1931-1942; hence the color position light signals found here. The bridge in the distance crosses over Western Avenue. Brighton Park Crossing itself is behind the camera.
