A (typically) spectacular photo by Delano. However, the comment
attached to the photo is seriously misleading. ....

Another comment refers to "Hill B" in the photo. I believe the shot was taken from the 1st. Street viaduct looking RR east, with the passenger facilities on the left, in which case "Hill B" would be behind the photographer to the right. This photo is one of many Jack Delano photos published in Valle's wonderful book "The Iron Horse at War".
