The rear of the depot, on the south side, at the corner of Bailey and Market
Streets. The track on Bailey, on which the ITS boxcar is standing, was
connected to the University Avenue tracks via Walnut Street. There were sidings
in the alley between the depot and the Inman Hotel, but these sidings did not
connect to Bailey Street because of the difference in elevation. Note the
slope in Market Street, to the right; the alley had no such slope, but was level.
