The images show streets and houses in the Portland neighborhood of Louisville near the construction site, construction workers and machinery, and the K & IT roundhouse and yards. In addition there are views of the Daisy Line interurban cars running between Louisville and New Albany, the first electrified line in the country. A separate set of 137 prints documents K & I grade crossings, and the building of overpasses in west Louisville and east downtown.
