Description
This is a view of the main line of the Illinois Central at Hulen Street at the top of Beale Street hill. This view is taken looking north. The crossings are not well protected and vision is obscured. As you can see, buildings obstruct vision and there are a great number of turn-outs and cross-overs here. See particularly how the trucks block the tracks. As you can see in the center rear, a large truck is actually blocking one of the tracks. Naturally, under these conditions a fireman must keep particularly close watch. This shows also weeds and debris along the tracks. In fact it is so bad that in some places it is difficult to see the track.
