It's a wonderful picture, taken before 1900. If you look carefully, you can see that the older 1870 depot is still there, so this captures the the look of the 10 years the old depot stood next to the 'new' train shed. Also there is a 'Grand Rapids and Indiana' sign on the gable end sheathing of the train shed. This picture was also reproduced in Fitch's 'Old Grand Rapids.'
