55th Street tower.(gone) Chicago Illinois USA. April 1984.

Here is My one and only photo that I have, from one of My early railfan locations. I attended nearby Curie High School from 1977 to 1981, and spent a lot of time visiting 55th Street junction and tower near Chicago's Midway Airport. I would sometimes come here after school to watch the Belt Railway of Chicago trains come and go from Clearing Yard in southwest suburban Bedford Park IL.
This old tower was demolished around the year of 1990. I miss it.
55th Street tower was located between west 55th Street and south Archer Avenue near south Knox Street. A southwest side Chicago icon.
