Advocate slideshow: Monroe Shops

Preservation Dallas gave a tour of the Monroe Shops, near the Illinois Station, on July 9. DART is renovating the 1914 building to serve as its transit police headquarters, and is seeking a silver LEED certification. The building is coming full circle in a way.

Photographer Steve Clicque of Preservation Dallas took these pictures.
