About The Whittier Depot: Built in 1892, this building is based on SP's Combination Depot 18 standard plan. It was located on SP's historic Whittier branchline at Milepost 503. The second floor was the agent's family living quarters. It was closed by the SP in 1967, and was moved and restored in 2000. Today, the railroad office and agent's apartment serve as the offices of the Whittier Transportation Center. The old waiting room houses historical displays. In 2005, the depot was listed to the National Register of Historic Places.

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.
