These two pictures show the Transfer House, looking north across Lincoln Square. The upper card is postmarked 1907, the lower 1906. On the left in the upper picture is an ITS interurban car on its way to W. Main Street and the line to Springfield. On the right is a double truck car, possibly in interurban service, heading toward E. Main Street. The lower picture shows an interurban car turning from N. Main to E. Main Street, heading for the Illinois Traction depot a few blocks away at the corner of Wood and S. Water Streets. Note the bell-shaped finial atop the peak of the roof of the upper level.
