The V. S. & T. Railroad Depot

Monroe has had a few streets that are no longer in existence. Take for instance this view up Jefferson street around 1900. This was the first Railroad depot in Monroe, for the Vicksburg, Shreveport and Texas Railroad. To give you an idea what is there now, the Star Hotel on the left was the Poolside Shop a few years ago. On the right is now the parking lot for Washington Plaza. You can see the railroad bridge in the distance. Neat!
