Kevin, Jerry, Rich, Michael, George, Larry and Bob thank you for your approvals and continued interest.

Bob- Asphalt shingle installation started about 1901.
I'm claiming this was built in 1890, so shingles were 10 years in the future. That should cover me.

Carl, they were wood Shingles just as the "Fish scale" shingles used on the side of the building were. I know you were mislead by the drawing but if you look at the other depots and building in the publication you will notice that other shingle roofed structures were drawn the same way. The draftsman did go to the extra work for diamond shaped shingles.
I really think you have done a wonderful job on this structure.

Thank you Bob.

I see what you mean about the way the old drawings may have missed some details. Duly noted.

Wow, that really looks great. The etched roof trim really makes the look. What a cool building.

i'm hoping your next post will include pics of the entire structure?

It's a work of a by a Master. I totally understand the attempt to decipher old drawings, that weren't always very accurate to start off with. In the days of India ink and ammonia drafting, those folks didn't have any 'edit' features on their drafting tables.

Kevin- Actually my next update.. I'll be building some baggage carts...an experiment of two different brands I've been wanting to do for a while...

....then I need to actually TAKE some final photos.

Jim- Thanks for your input. I can barely imagine the amount of labor that went into the drawings with pen and ink. Indeed... how did they cover a mistake? There was no "white-out" back then.

They started over. Too many and they were looking for a new job. This is why most prints were always under 11 X 17" and the would be subassembly prints. When I worked at Zenith, I'd have to wait outside the drafting room until the draftsmen gave the high sign. 55+ years ago.
