Pictures 15-24 and 15-25.
These two postcards show the ITS depot and its next-door neighbor, the Inman Hotel, on University Ave. in Champaign between Walnut and Market Streets.  Both pictures show the alley between the buildings, which had sidings for local interurban cars.  The lack of shadows in the upper picture suggests that the Inman Hotel had not yet been built, so this is a very early view of the depot.  In the alley to our right (the west side of the depot), we see a self-propelled freight car.  The lower picture shows a local car in the alley, waiting for passengers to board.
