View of the building's entrance at the rear (west) side. The south portion (on right)- known as Union Station - was originally built in 1913 by the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe, a subsidiary of AT&SF, The 11-story center (white portion) and 8-story north portion were added in 1932.

Looking east from the Depot down the Strand (street)shown here. Walk around or take a trolley ride around this Historic Landmark while parked in the museum lot and have lunch. NOTE: museum is closed during Galveston's week-long Mardi Gra in February plus several holidays. Check web page.

Note the route to Richmond, TX - as stated - took a more northwesterly direction from the Galveston Causeway. Later connecting spurs headed north about 35 miles to Houston, obviously would be advantageous. (Duh!)
