    Got these from the Alden Armstrong collection, post with permission. Any ideas where they were taken?

    Tom,

    These photos were taken in Kansas City.

    Rodney Milling is located near 29th Street Interlocking. Today the I-35 overpass would partially block the view of the elevator head house on the right edge of the first photo. The concrete silos have been torn down. The "Tanks" building has also been removed.

    Please see this link for a Google Maps image. http://maps.google.com/maps?q=kansa...hnear=Kansas+City,+Jackson,+Missouri&t=h&z=19

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    Mark

    I would have guessed these were taken in Kansas City, but I had no idea about the exact location. I have been by this area numerous times in the last few years and it sure has changed from when these photos were taken. Do we know what the date was?

    Thanks to Tom for posting and thanks to Mark for providing the details.

    Tom,

    Thought might enjoy this shot from an earlier time.

    The train is headed toward 19th Street Yard. The 29th Street Interlocking tower is on the right. Rodney Milling is above the train. Please see the following link. http://rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=778543

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!
