    you are on the railroad tracks, it’s part of the flashing light. look at the bottom of the picture, you’ll see the tracks and to the right, you’ll see the arm.

    In the 1950’s This was Jageman Bode Wholesale Grocrey Warehouse. There was a Siding that Box cars of Grocries were spoted so they could be unloaded. on the old GM&O Railroad.
    I spent many a night on that step at side door waiting for the Passenger trains So we could take Mail cars off of them.
