steam locomotive on the Chicago, Bluffton &

This is the old Schacht's
building on West Park Drive I am told that the sign
for this company, a dealer of imported horses, actually faced
the railroad behind the building. Many publications
flipped the negative when
printing a photo of this building because they thought the
signed faced the street.
