Union Pacific Building, Denver Colorado.


This is a Union Pacific building in downtown Denver.  I don't know anything about this building.  It's not far from Union Station so presumably it wasn't a depot.

Old and new: The path of the Union Pacific in Albany and Carbon Counties, Wyoming.


Hard to pick out in these photos, but the old, 19th Century, rail bed and the new 20th Century rail bed of the Union Pacific are both visible in this photograph, albeit barely.

Lex Anteinternet: Chicago and Northwestern Warehouse Fire, Casper Wyoming

Lex Anteinternet: Chicago and Northwestern Warehouse Fire, Casper Wyoming



A disaster struck Casper Wyoming on this day in 1917.  A warehouse belonging to the Chicago and Northwestern, and used also by C. H. Townsend, caught fire.  It was the largest fire in the town since a 1905 livery stable fire.
