|Tragic Site: Philip Pagett died while trying to outrace a train on his bike in the 200 block of South Audubon Road in the summer of 1950.|

About a month after the accident, Chuck Vogt returned to the scene and took this photo of the area where young Phil lost his life. The picture is particularly eerie because another photo has bled onto the negative and produced the ghost-like images on this picture. The tracks are now gone and the building with the gabled roof is no longer standing. Philip Pagett is buried in Washington Park Cemetery. He would have been 80 years old if he were still alive today.
