Caboose 1284 Springfield, Missouri in October 1979.

This photograph was taken at the Frisco’s North Yard. The view is looking northeast from the North Jefferson Avenue Footbridge. In the lower left one can see the shadow of the south tower and the curving arch from the south stairs.

The footbridge was constructed in 1902 and is 562 feet long. It was originally constructed to permit access between the Commercial Street Business District (south end) and the residential neighborhood to the north.

Special thanks to Mark Davidson.
