DENVER RAILS PICTURE OF THE DAY
 See yesterday's Picture of the Day 
A beautiful building in the Classic Revival architectural style of the late 1890's through 1920, - a Greek temple-like architecture - using terra cotta, brick, and stone materials; with colossal porticos, large columns topped by a front facing pediment (in this case the rounded EPSW logo roundel in terracotta. Also characteristic of this style, the front door is flanked by pilasters and is capped with a rounded fanlight. The arrangement of windows and doors is formal and symmetrical, in this case with the front door flanked by equally-sized windows that are also capped with rounded fanlights. The building is symmetrical with wings on each end, that are also symmetrically done with columns, cast stone and brick. The bronze dedication plaque to the left of the door is shown below.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Denver Rails is a website dedicated to capturing images of the railroads of Denver and the West. Whenever I travel I try to grab a snapshot of some of the vanishing traces of the railroad history. This site was created for displaying my collection.

In addition, I have compiled a database of railroad things to ride, see, and visit throughout the U.S. I hope it will be a tool for planning vacations, finding attractions and making memories. I don't charge anything for listings on my site so if you note something missing please let me know or submit the information yourself. Instructions are on the database main page.

Browse around and let me know what you think. Corrections and suggestions are always welcome.
