Looking NW at the Stonington Cooperative Grain Co., elevator and silos, Stonington, Illinois. The railroad is the Norfolk and Western. Main Street parallels the tracks through town. 2nd Street, which crosses the tracks to the south (left), has been cut, with the expansion of the site. Today this is all part of the Christian County FS Agriculture Cooperative. Notice on the roof of the Standard station it says 'STONINGTON - 10', with a directional arrow. It's 10-miles, flying, to Jacksonville.
