    Photo date is sometime in mid-1978 and shows the beginning of the depot's demolition. 2 missing stainless steel canopies over the front entry doors were the first items to be torn down. A banner from demolition contractor Minnesota Lumber and Wrecking is seen hanging on the facade which says "The Old Must Make Way For The New". Very rare aerial view of this long-gone depot.
