The Grand Trunk Western RR Elsdon Roundhouse. Chicago Illinois USA. October 1983.

I took this photo way back in October of 1983.

For many years, the 1914 built Grand Trunk Western Railroad Elsdon Roundhouse located at Approximately West 49th Street and South Kedzie Avenue in Chicago, was a neighborhood landmark.

When I took this photo, it was in it's last week of operation, and would soon be abandoned.
This old steam era facility at the Grand Trunk Western Railroad Elson Yard, would eventually be demolished in 1987, to make way for an outdoor retail strip mall.
