January 16, 1926. Excavation for the northern approach to the Chicago & North Western railroad Mayfair Division viaduct over McCormick Road has been delayed by flooding of the cut. Work on the diversion trestles and track on the far side of the railroad is underway. The large square structure in the background faces Howard Street and is a greenhouse built by Budlong Farms in 1925 and still in operation in 1945. (MWRD photo 12478)
