    Wow! That one on the lower right is one stall shy of a complete circle! I didn't realize that they constructed round houses so...er..round! :) Get the most use out of the space I guess! Neat picture!

    They sure did make them big way back when. This is the Erie Railroad roundhouse & turntable at Port Jervis NY in 1886. Note the small turntable in the background and the Delaware & Hudson canal in the foreground.
