Frisco.org resident expert Karl Brand explains that the Illinois Central and Central of Georgia are on the left and the Frisco on the right. On the left is GoG 305, an SW9, built during July 1952. It appears that its switch crew is preparing to add a caboose to the cut of cars on the track for which the switch is thrown. The Frisco ice house and ice dock and stock pens visible as are several coaches, which are scattered about. Given that Birmingham was the last bastion of Frisco steam, it seems odd that nary a single steam locomotive is visible in the vincinity of the coal tower and sand house. We might date the photo circa 1953-1956.
