Union Depot, Reed Street Station

Union Depot, Reed Street Station | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Slightly elevated view over railroad tracks of the Union Depot, erected in 1866 on Reed Street. Horse-drawn wagons and cabs are parked nearby,  and pedestrians are on the platform. A railroad car can be seen on another set of railroad tracks curving towards buildings on the right. Caption reads: "Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad Company built Brookfield to Milwaukee in 1864 and used a small frame structure for a depot until erection of the Reed Street 'Union Depot' in 1866. The temporary building was moved to the west side of the track and used for an emigrant depot, — the new building was placed on the site occupied by the building that was moved."
