Creative Advertising. June 1983.

While not necesarily a train photograph, I couldn't resist the temptation to post this. This is a view taken from Kedzie Avenue around 73rd Street on Chicago's southwest side. As the advertising on the fuel tank indicates...This is the "Nabisco" factory where Chips Ahoy cookies are baked. Just west of here along the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks, is a favorite past photo location known as "Hayford Junction". On My numerous photographic visits to Hayford Junction, The time I spent waiting for the different freight trains to pass, found the air smelling nicely with the distinct aroma of freshly baked cookies. Sometimes those visits to Hayford Junction would make Me very hungry. Mmmmmm!

Chicago is on such a grand scale that we tend to take things for granted. This was and may still be the largest bakery in the world.
