This is an overall view from inside the alcove.  The foundation work in the foreground is for a builder's supply dealer.  The switch just beyond (coming off the mainline) will have a track entering the property that will run on steel beams spanning those concrete piers.  The facility once was a fuel dealer, and coal was dumped into those bins below the track.  But here in 1964 the bins will contain building materials such as wire mesh, steel rebar, chain link, etc.  And of course, there will be plenty of sheltered bins and a building for the lumber and millwork.
