Southern Pacific Railroad depot at Rosamond, 1912.

Collector Michael J. Semas writes (2015): "Image taken in 1912 by the California State Railroad Commission. This station was established in 1876 and was named after the given name of an SP official's daughter. The depot was a cattle shipping and mining center."

Railroad historian John Sweetser notes (see below) that the depot was erected in 1889, and there was no stock chute for cattle at Rosamond. The railroad's original name for Rosamond was Sand Creek; it took the name Rosamond in 1885.
