The interior of the Southern Pacific Railroad shops in downtown Sparks, at the intersection of B Street and Pyramid Way. Men work in the machine shop with power provided by overhead belts. The roundhouse next door was removed in 1957, but as of 2024 the shop building still stands but is endangered.
