Front Street & Railroad Tracks

Brandon MN

1890 - Notice the wind mill for the city well on Front Street. You can see that there are three elevators at this time and the lumber yard is in operation. The Great Northern Depot is on the North side of the tracks.

Now you can see that the depot has been moved to the South side of the tracks. Notice the passengers on the station platform. Click on the picture to make it larger so that you get a better view. Don't miss the depot out-house to the south of the building and the smoke rising above the roof of the depot which comes from the steam engine.

The number of freight cars on this side track will tell you that the lumber yard and the grain elevators are thriving businesses.
