Description

This book is a photographic record of railroad depots in Washington State. The photographs have been selected to illustrate variations in size, architectural style and commonality as dictated by the railroad companies. In addition the book presents for the first time a comprehensive data summary of all known depots in Washington State; size, construction date and materials used are listed. Significant changes, rebuilding and replacement are addressed. Major railroads that operated within the state—Northern Pacific, Great Northern, Union Pacific and Milwaukee Road—are included in the book along with predecessors, successors and subsidiaries. Compilation of the data from surviving records involved extensive travel and research. Data sources include state archives, historical museums, railroad museums and national archive collections. The book will doubtless be of interest to architectural, railroad and urban historians as well as railway enthusiasts. Residents of Washington State can verify if an when a depot formerly existed in their locality.
