Lincoln Highway: Grand Avenue Intersection

This 1936 photo faces north across Lincoln Way at Grand Avenue.  The Fort Dodge, Des Moines & Southern Depot is visible behind the tree.  Notice the cars on Grand Avenue are crossing several sets of tracks at grade level since the overpass construction would not begin for another year.

This is a 1938 view of the same area.  Notice the interurban depot has been moved back.  Railroad water tanks are visible. (Farwell T. Brown Photographic Archive)
