TWO trolley wires/poles

Odd setup. Normally the rails are the return for the power for the trolleys. Wonder if the rail maintenance/structure was bad for the return?

I am sure they weren't using rubber tires on the trolleys *smirk*

Ingalls Building

The tallest of the buildings, the 15 story Ingall's Building is still there. My wife worked there for several years in the late 1990's. Her office would have been the one on the corner with the open window, or maybe the one below it. Beautiful building with quite a history.

Below is the same view from August of 2008.
