Illinois Central workers

These photos were taken around 1915 at the Illinois Central train depot. The photo above and to the left show workers at the freight house. In the picture to the left, George Halfmann is standing at the left. Next to him is Walter Kelly, the station master. In the picture above, George Halfmann is the short person in the middle and Walter Kelly is the second person from the left. The dog at the left is the RCA Victor dog.

The photo at the lower left shows IC trainmen standing on the steps of the caboose. George Halfmann is at top of the steps.
