Behind 144(i) is the Van Horne style station completed January
or February 1884 with three chimneys. Calgary (ii) and Medicine Hat structures
were the only two of the Van Horne era style stations with three, all
others had two chimneys. The sandstone structure (iii) was designed in
1893 and construction started that fall. After completion of this new
building the wood structure (ii) was then moved across the main track
and yard to the south side. The photo had to be taken summer 1894. Calgarys
first station (i) was a bunk-house which looked much like a box car, but
was of a standard design for that purpose.
