down at the depot
the first depot - 1871 to 1892
Photo 953 -- The first depot. The only man identified is Nick Goodenkauf, labeled as #2.
Is that the Table Rock depot in the distance? No one remembers a water tower, but our collective memory does not seem to go back to 1892 or before, which is when the first depot burned down. Whether this photo from the Historical Society's collection is in Table Rock or not, it is pretty neat.
