Descrizione articolo


A photographic portrait of the two-story railroad station captures the social aspects of living in the depot and the architectural dimensions of depots in different areas of the country. After differentiating between depots, which were single buildings, and stations, which were a collection of structures, H. Roger Grant traces depots from their beginnings as a existing trackside hotels, stores, or residences to highly specialized buildings developed by individual railroads for their particular needs. At the heart of this excellent book are the striking and rare postcards that provide a comprehensive visual review of this popular building type from coast to coast. Over 150 illustrations feature the gingerbread structures of the Northeast, the simple buildings of the Gold Rush West, and the mission-style stations of the Southwest in this first book to concentrate on this overlooked aspect of railroad history.

About the Author:

H. ROGER GRANT is professor of history at Clemson University. He is a specialist in American transportation history. Some of his recent books include histories of the Erie Lackawanna, Chicago & North Western and Wabash railroads and he is completing a book-length study of the Georgia & Florida Railroad.

Thomas Green, MD Professor and Chairman of Pediatrics Children's Memorial Hospital/Northwestern University Chicago, Illinois

Wayne Franklin, MD Physician-Director, CME Programs Associate Professor of Pediatrics Children's Memorial Hospital/Northwestern University Chicago, Illinois

Robert R. Tanz, MD Professor of Pediatrics Director, Diagnostic and Consultation Services Children's Memorial Hospital/Northwestern University Chicago, Illinois

This is a very impressive group of authors. Dr. Green is Chairman of Pediatrics at Northwestern, and Physician-in-Chief at Children's Memorial Hospital, one of the top pediatric hospitals in the U.S. (He succeeds James Stockman, who left the position to become President of the American Board of Pediatrics). Dr. Franklin is a pediatric cardiologist who coordinates all CME and recertification review activities for Children's, as such he is expert in the content of the recertification exam and its structure. Dr. Tanz directs the consult service at Children's and thus has a wide breadth of clinical knowledge. All three are widely published in the journal literature but this will be their first book.
