Re: tank cars GATX 22909 and HMHX 6012 in 1949


 

I think I figured out the location of this photo. (a side hobby of mine.) Comparing the caption with some aerial photos from 1940, I believe it's here: 
https://www.historicaerials.com/location/39.923104769766795/-75.14592497524838/1940/18 

Here it is on Google Maps. https://goo.gl/maps/cqGJPgPLf22FD7Sf9  If it's not honing in, the photographer would be standing just about where the exit for the Acme parking lot at 29 Snyder Ave is, facing NW.
