This depot for the Grand Island and Wyoming branch of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad was on Sherman Street at the intersection with Deadwood Street. The railroad shared the tracks with the Deadwood Central, a steam line which ran to Lead. An electric trolley began running on the tracks in 1902. Construction of the Martin and Mason Block, on the left side of the photograph, began in 1893, making it one of the first large commercial buildings on Sherman. [Photo credit] Wyoming State Museum.
