Looking east along a strip of land south of Central Street in Evanston, September 21, 1908. The top soil has been removed prior to construction of a diversion for Central Street, which is barely visible at left along the telephone poles. Trolley tracks and pavement will be laid down for the diversion on land that was part of a golf course. In the center background, also barely visible in the haze, is the Central Street railroad depot on the Milwaukee Electric line. (MWRD photo 3903)
