One of the busiest intersections in town was this crossing, just north of downtown.  The Park Pavillion, in what is now Centennial Park, burned in 1945, because a train blocking the tracks kept the fire trucks from responding to the fire.  Public outrage over this led to short-lived efforts to build an underpass under the railway tracks.
