  1. That cat in the foreground is probably tying to chase away the pair of Chessie cats invading his turn.

    Seemed too ironic not mention haha, this is a great shot. That great big steel plant makes this very recognizable.

  2. Would that be Ottawa St in the background? I don’t know what the large green building is though, a long gone Dofasco building?

    Also looks like Dofasco bought many of those residential properties behind the locomotive and built something there (now a parking lot and home of the Dofasco Fire Dept)

  3. Wow. Classic.

  4. A cat with C&O units, about a year before Chessie paint would first appear.
