Click on the photo to enlarge it.

The location was the Southgate Terminal Corporation at the former C&O Railroad Brooke Avenue Yard in Norfolk, Virginia. The terminal was an isolated switching district that was only served by rail via a car float from Newport News. The C&O yard was surrounded by warehouses, factories, a brewery, a concrete freight depot, and a large molasses tank.
