1970 Beverly Depot

Photograph by Clarence Rasmussen; courtesy of the Grant County Historical Museum.

Clarence Rasmussen was a section foreman at Beverly, who at one time lived in the former depot up the line at Boylston. Because the train order signal is missing the semaphore blades, this photo was taken in the brief period between the time when the depot was closed as an agency (in 1968-69) and when it was re-opened as a third trick train order office at the end of August, 1971. Rasmussen likely took the photo within days of the depot closing, thinking at the time that it was unlikely it would ever re-open again.
