Chicago, Illinois (Twenty-sixth Street Crossing)
July 27, 1971
Looking west at 26th Street Crossing, the Illinois Northern crossed (from near to far) Chicago Junction (Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific), Baltimore & Ohio, Pennsylvania (on the other side of the tower), and another Illinois Northern track which ran north to a connection with the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy. The large building in the distance to the left of the IN is the Cook County Criminal Courthouse (better known as the Cook County Jail).
