About The Santa Paula DepotThis two-story station building was built in 1887 and based on the Combination Depot No. 17 standard plan. It survives and is located on SP's historic San Joaquin Division, Ventura branchline at Milepost 414.7. The second floor was the agent's family living quarters. It was closed by the SP in 1975. Today its freightroom houses the Santa Paula Arts Association Gallery, and the former railroad office is home of the Santa Paula Chamber of Commerce. The depot is served by the tourist Fillmore & Western Railroad.

About The Draftsman: Jean-Guy Dube is a professional draftsman and apprenticing architect. He has researched and written about Southern Pacific depots since 1983. From the first tape measurement to the finished blueprint can take Mr. Dube several months to complete. His work includes the use of rare photographs and other historical resources to produce a historically accurate blueprint. Dube also uses traditional methods of blueprinting to create a blue with white line print from his original vellum.

Care of Blueprints: Each blueprint is created one at a time by hand from a single vellum and, by their nature, will have minor variations in color and clarity. Blueprints should never be exposed for long periods to sunlight or bright rooms, or they will fade and yellow. They will run if exposed to water.

About The Series: These diazo blueprints are measured and drafted drawings. They are based on SP standard depot plans, historical photographs, and, in the case of the surviving depots, on measurements of the actual buildings by Jean-Guy Dube. Each handsome and informative print is suitable for framing. Each blueprint includes noted floor plans, sections, and elevations (except Ventura County sampler). The prints also contain historical notes about the buildings. Each blueprint order is mailed separately in a protective tube.
