This photo was taken on the Brownsville Road approximately 2 and a half miles northeast of the railroad tracks in Edwards, or about 2 miles northeast of the junction of Jackson and Brownsville Road in the previous picture.  It was near this area that the wagon train was brought to a halt and ordered to reverse course and take the Bridgeport Road to the Confederate defenses at the Big Black River.  The view is looking to the northeast
