An up close and detailed view of the Grand Trunk Western Railroad Elsdon Depot on west 51st Street. ( Gone. ) Chicago Illinois USA. October 1983., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo way back in October of 1983.
Seen here in it's final week of operation as a yard office and dispatching center, is the old 1888 built Grand Trunk Western Railroad Elsdon depot on West 51st Street in Chicago.
Within a month after I had taken this photo, this old two story former passenger train station would be demolished.
This is the original photo "Cropped", to show the platform and details up close.
