East Texas Railroad Photograph Selections
Houston East & West Texas Railway depot at Burke
This vintage photograph comes from our Scrapbook of Ina McCall, Burke postmistress from 1914 to 1955 and daughter of longtime Burke railroad station agent Daniel Bynum McCall. The building is identified as the Burke railroad depot, probably about 1900. The depot's construction apparently dates from Houston East & West Texas Railway designs, before Southern Pacific gained control of the line in late 1899.
