HISTORIC PHOTO - Taken in about 1918, this photograph shows the freight depot in Grand Island used by the Union Pacific Railroad Company and St. Joseph & Grand Island Railroad Company.  On the dock, workers can be seen loading and unloading the boxcars.  A metal wheelbarrow and automobile are parked in front of the depot. Written on the poll of the railroad crossing sign is, “Look out for the cars”.  This building still stands in the Union Pacific yards.

Julius Leschinsky took this photograph from the top of the Nebraska Mercantile Building (358 North Pine Street) looking southwest.  The picture highlights the Union Pacific Railroad’s passenger depot, completed in 1918.  Behind the depot is the four-story Koehler Hotel, located in the southwest corner of North Locust and West South Front Streets.
