The Steam Shovel in the Stadium

When I was a small kid, one of my favorite books was Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, so you might understand my fondness for old photographs of steam shovels. This one is digging at the site of a stadium or horse racing track.

The writing on the side of the crane appears to read "The Orchard Co. Marion Ohio" (Orchard is questionable, but the photo's resolution isn't good enough to say for sure). There is no facility that looks like this currently in Marion. Any ideas where this might be?
