This picture of the old Cape Girardeau Northern depot building at Middle and Independence streets doesn't show in detail the dilapidated condition into which the once-fine building has fallen. Glass in the windows is broken; the doors to the basement have been boarded up and the interior is a general mess. In times of excessive rains, water floods the basement. Built nearly 60 years ago by the Houck interests when the Cape Girardeau Northern Railroad was put through, it is now the property of the Missouri Pacific Railroad. (G.D.
