• In his book, The Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic Railway," John Gaertner writes, 'Hancock was the last major point on the Mineral Range to receive a new depot. Contractor Archie Servile began work on the single-story 30'x76' structure, up on the bluff at Lakeview Station, on June 15, 1916. The "dark rose colored brick" building with cement trim had both ladies' and men's waiting rooms and "sanitary drinking fountains and lavatories." Hancock Agent Charles S. Jones and his clerks transferred over to the new depot on November 29, 1916.' I believe this image depicts the structure Gaertner describes, Hancock's second "Lakeview (or Lake View) Station" near what is now Depot Street."
