Dunno if that was a bookstore, but that is indeed Rockford. Says it was Choo Choo Law Office, but I see that's closed as well. I'll let someone else take a turn posting a where be it.

The law office with the caboose and a passenger coach are both located on the west side of S. Squares Street and east side of the White Pine Rail Trail, just south of E. Bridge Street in downtown Rockford, Kent County.

Somewhere in West Michigan where you could once find street running on this industrial spur. Perhaps leaving the little map, along with the directional arrow, will provide some clues.

Could you have made that any easier? Hello, Niles MI along Howard and 9th st. geezz..

j/k, i wouldn't have known without the clues. The part in the upper left where you kept "Michigan" but showed it was a very short city name helped.

Had to throw you a softball after your three recent easy ones. :) However, next time I'll move the "Michigan" over to the far right to make it look like a loooooong city name. :lol:
