[The façade of the Stockyards Hotel]

Description: Photograph of the façade of the Stockyards Hotel, located at 109 East Exchange Avenue in Fort Worth. The building is made of brick and built in the Old West architecture style. Geometric patterns of triangles create a band around the upper portion of the building. The roofline gradually rises slightly in the middle with small steps of increasing height. Sections of the building's front have groups of rectangular windows. In the center of the building, a large section has six windows, three on top of three, all with two-toned curtains. The rest of the sections, all separated by brick with geometric dimensions, each have four windows, two on top of two, with two-toned curtains. The awning that shadows the entrance is supported by four small columns, reads "STOCKYARDS HOTEL," and has a railing around the top of it, resembling a balcony. Tall floor-to-ceiling windows line the ground floor, allowing the people walking on the sidewalk in front of the hotel to see inside. Shorter awnings provide shade to the rest of the sidewalk on either side of the main entrance. A car is blurry in the foreground.

[Three arches at the Ashton Depot]

Description: Photograph of three arches at Ashton Depot, formerly known as both Santa Fe and Fort Worth Union Depot, located at 1501 Jones Street, in Fort Worth. The arches are made out of brick and have strips of wood over top of the brick, creating a sunburst pattern at the curves of the arches, and horizontal stripes at the bottoms. Each arch has been framed out in wood. A small shelf of crown molding sits above each arch, and a corbel attaches the peak of each arch to its corresponding shelf. Above these shelves, two shades of brick have been stacked to create a geometric pattern reminiscent of flowers. Each arch has been filled in with wooden paneling. A horizontal strip of wood goes across this paneling, dividing the arch with the arch on the top and the straight sides below it. In the curved section of each arch is a small, arched window, each with two panes of glass divided by a piece of wood. Below the wooden divisor in each arch is a doorframe. The leftmost arch's doorframe has been filled with the same wooden paneling as the rest of it. A round sign on a post stands in front of it. The middle arch's doorframe contains a metal door with no handles and two metal posts sitting in front of it. The right arch has a wooden door with a handle, lock, and piece of paper that reads "OFFICE HOURS" taped to the inside of a window at the top of it. In front of the arches, bricks have been laid in a herringbone pattern to create a walkway.
