Did any of you see American Pickers episode in Indiana?

They picked up a like-new porcelain sign: Indiana Harbor.

Looks like a railroad sign to me. I worked for the Indiana Harbor Belt in Indiana Harbor for a couple of winters, handling cars bringing coke to US Steel when Lake Michigan froze.

I believe the seller said something like the sign was from a railroad.

Up along the lake by Inland Steel there are several RR going through and that is where the station was located.

I think Bob K has found the answer!
Here's a South Shore Freighter rumbling through the other side of East Chicago, downtown 4 corners at Chicago Ave. and Indianapolis Blvd.



My dad was the policeman on the 4 corners. The mill traffic was very heavy during morning and afternoon rush hour.

On the left corner of the photo, you can see Haney's Rx store. I worked there as a stockboy all through high school. Further down the block is the Voge theater, where I spent many a Saturday afternoon watching movies. Next to Haney's is Friedman's jewelers.

The guy did mention that it was from the railroad...Cj
S C Jones Posted - 01/18/2015 : 19:20:13
The guy they bought it from said something like, "I want to get rid of it." He may have said he didn't like it--acted as though that was his feeling about it.

I don't know in what part of Indiana he was--they don't give specifics, which is
wise.

It probably came from here [URL=http://s850.photobucket.com/user/BobK1942/media/IndianaHarborStation_zpsd12109e8.jpg.html][/URL]

Cool sign, regardless of where it came from.
BobK Posted - 01/17/2015 : 18:44:00
CJ, they didn't say what or where it was from.

My wife watches all of these. I'll ask...Cj
BobK Posted - 01/17/2015 : 05:22:36
It may have been a sign from a RR stop. [URL=http://s850.photobucket.com/user/BobK1942/media/IndianaHarbor_zpsa73a857a.jpg.html][/URL]

Interesting that such a sign would exist, for as we all know, Indiana Harbor was just a section of East Chicago. It never existed as an incorporated city/town on its own.
