The contractor’s construction yard, looking northeast from the top of the south cableway tower, July 17, 1924. The spur line off the Mayfair Division railroad is to the right. At left is the manufactured gas plant, and in the center background across the North Shore Channel is a brick making plant, both being on Oakton Street. Also, from left to center is construction of the embankment for a new electric line (today’s CTA Yellow Line). (MWRD photo 10931)
