One structure is labeled with a sign in front of it which reads "Ticket Office 49" and has a few boards and crates before it on the sidewalk. Advertisements on its walls indicates that it is the "Chicago and Alton Ticket Office" and that they offer a "direct road" to Chicago, and trips to New York, Boston, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, Detroit, Cleveland, and Niagara Falls. Many horses and carriages line the streets, as well as a few people and streetlamps. One building along the street is labeled "T.J.
