Here is a map from 1908 of L.A.'s railroads and electrified railways.

It shows Commercial Station on Alameda but I haven't been able to find any information or photos.

Above: The first station that caught my eye on this map was the Arcade Depot,
also on Alameda. I was able to find several photographs of this impressive structure.









Below: The Arcade Depot in 1900.

Below: And last but not least my favorite find.

This photo was listed under photographs showing vacant lots.
To my surprise when I enlarged it, there was the Arcade Depot in all it's glory.

This is the Arcade Southern Pacific Depot looking east on 5th Street in 1890.
Notice the 'Narcisse House' on the right.

GaylordWilshire....could the mystery building in the old high school pic be
this one.....or is the Arcade Depot too far south?
