|Southwestern Freight Depot in 1989|
Few folks noticed the massive St. Louis Southwestern Railway Freight Depot building back in 1989, when we shot this photo. The impressively vast structure, cast in concrete, is still one of the most distinctive buildings in St. Louis. The five-story depot was built in 1911 and is 750 feet long. It has been abandoned for decades.

The Depot was placed on the National Register in 2004. Read the nomination form HERE.
