Leith Street Panorama 1920.
You can super enlarge just about any photo on this blog for viewing small details. The way this is done is a little different depending on which browser is used. October 16, 1920 looking west up Leith Street from the Pere Marquette overpass. On the left is the Powerhouse #14 in the process of being constructed. On the right in the foreground is the then factory #15 pattern shop for the foundry. Beyond the pattern shop is factory #20 foundry. In the far distance can be seen factory #11 the engine plant. The men walking up the sidewalk is the same walk I made the day I hired in. This was called the Leith St. subway since 1917. April 1917.
