It's time for Muncie Indiana.;
Interesting, the postcard (assumed) shows a baggage car unloading in the rear, but the photo doesn't show any tracks in the rear. Furthermore, the post card shows a water crane, but the photo does not. I assume the two images were taken years apart, but which is the more modern?
Such a beautiful depot and such a mix of architectural elements, with a dome above the Agent's bay, a little windowed cupola on one end, latticework adjacent to the chimney, an eyebrow window and all kinds of stone, brick and cement surfaces. The Architect must have had a ball laying it all out.
Thanks again Roger. Your posts are always a fine way to start a Saturday.
There were tracks on both sides of the station. Both photos were post cards.
Those old depots were works of art. Does that one still stand, Roger?
Thanks again. I admire the architecture here. Now we have buildings that are cubic with clown colored signs.
Which railroads were participating in the Union portion of the station?
NKP and Big Four I believe.
