Pictures 14-23, 14-24, and 14-25

Three views of the scene in front of the interurban depot on S. Vermilion Street.  At the top, we see IT motor car 284 pulling trailer 517 on January 3, 1952.  It has arrived as eastbound train 60, and will shortly depart westbound as train 63.  The middle photo, taken March 31, 1952, is of car 285.  Those two photos are looking toward the west side of the street.  The depot is the building at the left, with the sign “Illinois Power Co.”  The bottom picture is looking toward the east side of the street at car 284 on December 10, 1950. — Charles Able photographs
