Photo: Jack Delano, April 1943

It’s a bit of a slow day at work, so I’ve been casually browsing the Flickr Commons photo collection. The photos available there never cease to amaze me. Sometimes I use it as a time portal to travel back in time to a place I wish I could have been at.

Here’s a beautiful photo of freight cars in South Water Street freight terminal in Chicago, Illinois along the Illinois Central Railroad track. That glowing Pabst Blue Ribbon sign is just phenomenal.

UPDATE: Here’s another view of the same place and the same sign, but from another angle.
