Union Depot: 1909

Union Depot: 1909

Detroit circa 1909. "Union Depot, Fort and Third Streets." 8x10 inch dry plate glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

Detroit's second station.

This was the smaller, and in my mind more beautiful, of Detroit's two major railroad stations (the other being the now-infamous Michigan Central Depot). I vividly remember going through there with my parents in the predawn dark on the way to visiting my great-aunt around the mid-1960s. Alas, it was also one of the Motor City's many architectural losses, having been torn down in 1974.
