JEAN-GUY TANNER DUBE
Who will give a talk and PowerPoint presentation based on his new book:
RAILROAD DEPOTS – A SOUTHERN PACIFIC COLLECTION
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Awarded the national Leicester B. Holland Prize for 2017 by the National Park Service and Library of Congress, professional draftsman and apprenticing architect Jean-Guy Dubé has researched and written about Southern Pacific depots since 1983. This book features 48 black and white blueprint drawings by Dubé, spanning many decades, styles and subject matter. Each blueprint, from the first tape measurement to the finished product took several months to complete. This is the first compilation of his drawings. While his work primarily includes standard and unique depots, this book also includes a handful of individual railroad built buildings and a few non-railroad buildings.
Each blueprint includes noted floor plans, elevations, some sections, and has an accompanying history. For a few, there are some previously unpublished black and white historical photos, and others come from various historical societies, museums, individuals and as well as the author.
This book is a wonderful representation of some of Dube’s drafting and research over the years.
