1890 Spokane Falls Map-Seattle Lake Shore & Eastern

Black line coming from the red circle in center heading up towards left then around the left edge of map before departing the edge at bottom left.

The bridge over the Spokane river was also used by the GN, along with the connecting track to the center of town, until the GN built their own bridge across the river.

Adrian Roundhouse And Turntable Views

Vintage photos courtesy of the NP Telltale.

See this location today here.

In the background you can see Northern Pacific Bridge 59 crossing over the Great Northern tracks. The GN depot and train order signal is peeking from the left of the building in the top center.



There is no sign of the roundhouse having been built, but you can still walk around in the turntable pit and there is still a piece of concrete in the middle with a 1903 cast date in it.
