These three photos appear to be taken at the same place — the Lake Street crossing of the EJ&E Railroad, where Ezra Gilpin worked in 1923, according to the caption of one of the photos.

As we've already noted, he was still working as a railroad crossing guard when the 1930 census came around, though perhaps not at the Lake Street crossing.

I can't read the name on the sled in the last picture — King something? (Anyway, it's not Rosebud.)

Orson Welles would have been 100 years old today, great timing ;)
