Description:

“McCormick Reaper Works and wood shop stock yard as seen from across a canal. In the foreground is a rail yard with a small engine and rail cars. The factory was owned by the McCormick Harvesting Machine company before 1902. In 1902 it became the McCormick Works of the International Harvester Company. The factory was located at Blue Island and Western Avenues in the Chicago subdivision called Canalport.”

Can anyone identify these freight cars?
