Local Lore & Legend: Down at the Depot...
seen pics of a substantial depot at Tangipahoa in days gone by.
This may be the foundation for it.
Me: oh yes!!
The building I referred to, is the Waterworks building, around the corner from the body shop on SW Central (parallels the railroad, you went down this street to Factory Street and saw the ruins of Gullett Gin Co.)
The Waterworks building has a smaller brick building behind it. Behind that was the berm (raised earth dike, often used around chemical or oil tanks), which was surrounded by the chain link fence. Probably hard to see in my photos. The water tank stood inside the berm. Nothing there but the old leg foundations now. Hope that clarifies it, sorry if my original text was not clear.
