    The first two photos, and the final, are both 1908 postcards of the Union Depot here in Muskegon, Michigan.

    The third picture is one I took last summer whilst riding by on bike.

    In any event, neither of them match the 1895-built Richardsonian-Romanesque masterpiece of a train station now used as Visitor Center (With small museum inside).

    The discrepancies are failures on part of either the photographers not writing down the colours correctly, or the card makers not matching up the colours. The more correct of the two was printed in Germany.

      each of them look so familiar! i could have sworn that i had seen them before, but i think that this architecture was so prevalent at the time...

      Same building in each. A semi-famous example of the style.
