VINTAGE OLD YPSILANTI TRAIN DEPOT STATION ca. 1900 photo picture print photograph for sale. Ypsilanti's first depot, built around 1838, was said to be a simple wood frame structure that sat south of the tracks in the vicinity of the present freight house. The structure was removed to make way for a new three-story brick structure which was completed in 1860. This rare Ypsilanti Michigan Central Depot Station photo picture print for sale is of this structure, circa 1900. In 1910, a disastrous fire swept through the depot, destroying the entire third story which provided living quarters for the station agent and his family. Later that year, the depot was rebuilt into a one and 1/2 story configuration. Tragedy struck once again on August 10, 1939 when a westbound Michigan Central freight train derailed, causing further damage to the structure and yet another rebuilding. In the process, the depot lost its tower and baggage room vestibule, resulting in a rather spartan-appearing trackside facade--nothing compared to the wonderful architectural OLD YPSILANTI TRAIN STATION DEPOT structure seen in this rare photo print for sale. This old Ypsilanti Train Depot was the site of greenhouses which supplied other Michigan Central stations with flowers and plants from its beautiful tended gardens. We can even see a spraying water hose on the grass making sure the gardens were well tended to.

The quality of the Jan Kaulins' photographic prints is much higher than we can show within limits of this web site. Slight tonal changes and blurring around the areas of strong contrast are a result of the JPEG compression process, and are not part of the high quality originals.
