In case any one is wondering ... this picture was taken at the Milwaukee
Galewood (Chicago) yard in 1943. Interesting mix of new an old cars in this
picture - from wood cars with above car top brake wheels and wood roof
walks to steel cars with steel roof walks. A few years earlier - or later - and
this mix would not be seen!
This is a Shorpy image taken by Jack Delano.
