Night time at the Grand Trunk Western Elsdon depot on West 51st Street. ( Gone.) Chicago Illinois USA. April 1983.

I took this photo way back in April of 1983, and recently did a cropping of it to show You some of the details beteer.

The Grand Trunk Western Railroad Elsdon Yard on est 51st Street in Chicago Illinois, was in it's final months of operation prior to closing and abandonement in October of 1983.

When I took this night time photo of the wooden two story Elsdon depot, it was stil very business as usual / 24 -7 at the GTW Elsdon Yard.

After the yard was closed in October of 1983, the classic 1888 built Elsdon depot, was demolished in November of 1983.
