July 7, 1926. A long freight train is passing on the diverted track, while pillars and spans are being formed and cast with reinforced concrete for the piers of the railroad viaduct over McCormick Road. Excavation of the northern approach proceeds beyond the freight train. The North Shore Channel is at right and the manufactured gas plant on Oakton Street is at left. (MWRD photo 12790)
