Structures

Both the Temple and Western Archives have large collections of photos of Santa Fe structures.   Depots are especially prominent among the structures.  Other structures include Harvey hotels and eating establishments, engine facility structures, section houses, bunkhouses, tool sheds, towers and so forth.
