Can anyone identify the location of this Train Station Tower in the background of this photo? It was taken around 1932-1936. It might be in Southern  California or maybe in the state of Ohio area.
Any thoughts or info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you Edhat Readers for solving the location of this photo. Trying to piece together a Family Members history as a youth thru photos. This really helps. Thanks again.

It looks like the Union Pacific Depot In Cheyenne. Check it out here. https://www.wyomingnews.com/historic-photos-of-the-union-pacific-depot-in-cheyenne/collection_fb39d11e-55f1-11e7-9009-17e8f7bb4312.html#1. It just looks like the tower in the back ground.

Well done! Very cool you were able to identify the location so many States, and nearly 100 years, away from SB.

Look up Mt. Royal station in Ohio. It might be that one

That's close but it doesn't have the 2 successive building arches after the tower like Wyoming has.

Agree, it looks more Ohio (German influence) than California.. Looks like there is a fun story associated with that photo.
