Pictures 2, 2.5, and 3.

These three pictures show the Transfer House, looking north across Lincoln Square.  The upper card is postmarked 1907, the middle 1906, and the bottom one 1916.  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 middle and bottom pictures show interurban cars 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.  In the bottom picture, we have a good view of the arched windows in the side of the car.  Note the bell-shaped finial atop the peak of the roof of the upper level
