This image appears on page 33 of the February 5, 1907 edition (volume 6, number 5) of "Rock Products: Devoted to the Production of Rock and its Products" published by the The Francis Publishing Company. The image appears as the backdrop in an advertisement for The Chicago and Bloomington Stone Company, Bloomington, Indiana. For an image of the advertisement see image P0020273. The view is from a point on East Dillman Road looking north/northeast. The train is heading south and is about to cross East Dillman Road. South Fairfax Road cannot be seen but its intersection with East Dillman Road is located about 775 feet to the right. The point where the railroad tracks cross East Dillman Road is about 724 feet to the west of the middle of the intersection of East Dillman Road and South Fairfax Road. For a June 2018 view of this area see image P0081855.
