PRR - Pennsylvania Railroad, Waterfront Belt Line
Historic aerial of West Front Street, now Mehring Way, and several railroad facilities, looking northeast. The CG&E power plant is at the bottom left, with many round gasometers in the scene. The Ohio & Mississippi terminal is at the bend of Mehring Way, where street running rail cars can be seen on the waterfront belt line. The long B&O warehouse dominates the center of the photo, now Longworth Hall, with a small yard and partial roundhouse behind it. The C&O viaduct and warehouses are above that against the developed West End, now Queensgate neighborhood. The rail viaduct at the bottom right is a coal dumping spur off of the approach to the C&O bridge. The CH&D terminal is at the very top center with a few yard tracks visible.
