The tank is lowered partway on to a flatbed truck that awaited it on Clark Street.
The tank made an odd temporary neighbor sitting in the middle of Clark Street.

A Chicago fireman oversees the move, ensuring the safety of the many onlookers. The tank now rests in the Swedish American Museum's parking lot at Foster and Ashland.
