Re: IC 161722 Chcago, 1940's

When I was writing my book for the MPHS I’d included a photo of a Mopac freight house that the envelope was labeled “St Louis, Missouri”.  I’d send the manuscript around to a few SMEs to catch any errors or add to my captions and Bill Pollard remarked the above freight house “looked like the one in Memphis”.  There was a line of 1920 era cars parked around the entrance and since the original negative was an 8” x 10” I could enlarge it enough to read the license plates which all showed ‘TENN’ obviously showing Bill was right on target.
