Other vested or owned interests of the NSL

1924 The NSL bought the Liberty Lake Gravel Company (originally owned by Interstate Sand & Gravel Company)  with properties in Libertyville and Kenosha. In 1925 the name was changed to THE NORTH SHORE MATERIAL COMPANY. Later in 1925, The North Shore Material Company acquired the properties of the Racine Crushed Stone Company. Consisting of 60 acres, it was located on the Root River, south of Horlicksville Road. The lake on the Libertyville property was also harvested in the winter for ice and it was sold in the summer to a local ice dealer. Property also held by the Company was the Lake County Fair Grounds in Libertyville. This consisted of a grandstand, exhibit buildings, animal sheds and a hospital building.

The "Madison " bridge is actually the "C&NW Madison Division bridge over 6th Street." The Harrison Street shops are just beyond the trestle to the left. Thanks Keith!!
