We’ve added a large number of photographs to our collection of area Chicago Milwauke St Paul & Pacific Railroad Company depots. The photographs are taken from a number of depots around Aberdeen, and the railroads it connects to. A number of the depots, and in some cases, the entire town, no longer exist. Below are some highlights:
Yardmaster W.C. Westfall and his office at Aberdeen, SD yard. The yardmaster would always be dressed up.
Meeting trains at the Ipswich Depot.
The elevator near the Holmquist Depot burned, you can see the scorched walls of the depot.
Hosmer Depot, as seen from a train car.
Gathering outside the Millard depot, including two conductors in the engine.
Here is a quick link for the recent railroad photographs.
