Little red depot

This is another stereoview of Eureka Springs, specifically of the original wooden depot that served from 1882-1912. At one point it had red trim and was fondly called “the little red depot.” This is the structure that Jen, Stan and George pass as they follow the tracks walking into town early in “The Water Cure.” Stan would eventually work in the engine shop there, the shed-like structure behind the depot.
