The first photo shows the restaurant building Blake
mentions. Note the tasteful and accurate reproduction of a
lighthouse, and the even more tasteful giant octopus. The
parking lot was the site of a 9 track yard. The yard's
freight station would have been just off to the extreme
left. The commercial building on the right was built over
the site of an end loading platform, according to my 1949
Sanborn map.

The second photo show the abutment for the bridges over
Gibson Ave. for two tracks which lead into the yard.
