(left) Pocatello railroad yards, looking southwest, winter late 1920s. In the foreground is part of the roundhouse. The chimneys are to carry off the engine smoke. The long building in the right middle distance is the Stores Department. The large black structure in the right center is the coal tipple, built in 1913. Kinport Peak is directly above it. Cars of coal on the right are to supply the tipple. To the left of the coal tipple is the steeple of St. Andrew's Church and across Arthur Street is the second Pocatello High School. In the center are at least 30 stored steam engines. The Caboose ("crummy") servicing area is to the left. At the left is the Center Street viaduct. In the middle distance is the Bannock Hotel, and the Carlsen (Spaulding) Building to its right. In the haze, to the left of the Bannock Hotel, is the Pocatello water reservoir system, originally operated by James Murray, with Lombardy poplars on the edge of the open reservoir.

(right) View from the Center Street viaduct of passenger depot, downtown Pocatello and the Bannock Range, looking southwest, late 1920s. Note covered passenger waiting shed in front of depot. An icing car services a diner in a string of passenger cars, removed from a passenger train that terminated at Pocatello. Baggage and mail cars are the second and third from the front of the string. Two business cars of railroad officials stand just north of the depot. The houses north of the depot are on Company Row, east of South Harrison Ave. To the right of the Fargo-Wilson Wells building (light-colored, center of picture) is the Benson Hotel; the Kasiska Building, and the Telephone Building to the left of the Nicollet (Whitman) Hotel. The Bannock Hotel tower is at right distance. The Yellowstone Hotel is the large three-section building to the left of Fargo's. Note stairs leading up onto the viaduct on right edge of view.
