Fred Harvey postcard from 1911 of Frisco station with news stand
Greatly altered Frisco station, with no sign of the news stand, 2009
The Frisco station borders the north side of the Fort Smith National Historic Site, south of Garrison Avenue and east of the railroad tracks. The view is facing south and taken from the tracks underneath the Garrison Avenue bridge that goes over the Arkansas River. The roof of the fort's commissary building can partially be seen to the right of the window awnings in the old postcard.
Frisco depot at Main Street with the Harvey House in the distance
General location of the depot and Eating House, right half, 2009
The Frisco depot was between the E-W oriented tracks, just west of Main Street and east of Union Street. The Eating House must have been just west of Union Street, which did not cross the tracks. Now there is a Main Street bridge over the tracks. Union curves east on the south side of the tracks and merges with Main. The photo on the right was taken from under the Main Street bridge. I believe the buildings were in the strip between the second track and the green caboose.
The Frisco station was on the west side of the tracks, with the Harvey House to the south of it. The black sign says: “FRISCO/Lunch Room/Fred Harvey.” Note the street crossing in the foreground of the postcard. I believe this is Elm Street, which is in the foreground of the modern photo. Frisco Park has Elm on the north side and Poplar on the south, so the Harvey House likely was nearer Poplar. View looking SW.
Later brick Union Station with news stand at Cherry Street
Former location of Union Station as seen from Cherry Street, 2009
The later brick station was located south of the former wooden one and the Harvey House. It was on a narrow wedge of land with Cherry Street on the north and 1st Street on the west. Cherry Street is one block south of Poplar, which forms the south border of Frisco Park, were the Harvey House apparently was. View looking SW.
