Attached is a composite of 4 photos of the Milwaukee Road depot in La
Crosse, Wisconsin taken by Craig Bluschke in 1973 and again last month.
This well-designed depot is in excellent condition today. Formerly the
headquarters of the La Crosse Division of Milwaukee Road, it is used both
by Amtrak and a number of small businesses.
