Building History

Midtown Monthly writer William Burg wrote of the freight depot: "In the same year [1909], Western Pacific built a freight depot, also in Mission Revival style, near 3rd Street in the alley between Q and R. Called “Whitney Avenue” and running parallel to the old SVRR/Southern Pacific R Street line, this alley railroad served WP freight customers between their main line and the waterfront. Today it carries Regional Transit light rail trains between 10th and 19th Street." (See William Burg, Midtown Monthly, "Very Old Spaghetti Factory," accessed 08/26/2016.)
