    Description: The plans for the San Marcos Hotel called for a fireproof building made out of reinforced concrete.  This required massive amounts of concrete, stone, and steel, which were delivered from across the West.  The stone and concrete were brought in by the Southern Pacific Railroad.  Colorado Fuel and Iron Works in Pueblo, Colorado, was unable to keep up with the demand for steel, which led to major delays in construction.  Some materials came from local companies such as the Chandler Lumber Company and the Chandler Brick Yard. The photograph shows the rock and concrete crushing machinery at work creating concrete.
