Squint Shot 062211

There have been at least two buildings on the site where the depot is located at the railroad tracks -- the current building which is now used as an office and a wooden building that burned in the early 1900s. On the current building, it would appear also there have been at least a couple different roofs -- the current one, where the ends are more squared off, and then the one shown in the older photograph, ca. 1954.

The two biggest changes that are noticeable are the water tank is gone as well as the portico. The roof of the tank actually caught fire, buckling into the tank, resulting in the removal of this water tank. The portico was removed a few years after this picture was taken as it was deemed too close to the tracks for the passing trains.
