Title: First Milwaukee Railroad Depot
Description: Elevated view of the first Milwaukee railroad depot, which was used by the Milwaukee & Waukesha and the Milwaukee & Mississippi railroads. The Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway acquired the Milwaukee & Mississippi Railroad in 1868 and later diverted the passenger trains to the Union Depot on Reed Street. The presence of passenger cars to the north of the depot suggest that this picture was taken shortly prior to that move.
