      Dave,

      You can see it now if you go to google maps. Then,  enter '10 N Wheaton Avenue, Wheaton IL'.  Select Street View and it will take you to a point about 200 feet North of image # 2.  The arrows will let you "walk" as far south as the grade crossing, and then you can turn and see all the background buildings in photo #2.    Without the CA&E.

      Regards,

      Tom Leaton

      If we can come up with a consensus, I will change the caption on photo #2.

      If you blow up # 2, you can make out the Wheaton station to the lower left of the courthouse. It is at a rather severe angle to the viewer, but you can see it.

      If you compare photographs # 2 and 3 you will recognize the DuPage County Courthouse in both. It's more distant in # 2, but you can still make it out.

      Hello, Fellow CA&E fans.

      Because the 2-car consist is on the right, it could be heading west  to Aurora.  Elgin trains did not have 2 cars very often.  It could be coming from the yards to eventual travel east, but first using the cross over between Wheaton Avenue and Hale Street.  The location is between Wheaton Avenue (in the photo) and West Street (behind the photographer).

      I also grew up in Wheaton ('45-'56).  From '28-'49 my father ran a pharmacy just across the street from the main station, at Hale and Liberty Drive.
