Chinese Railroad Worker Bunkhouses and Cook houses

From: "Mike Polk"

... I am continuing my research on Chinese bunkhouses and cookhouses along the Central Pacific Railroad during the 1870's, 1880's and, possibly, 1890's. I have a question that, perhaps, someone can help with. I am preparing a presentation for a conference on Chinese Railroad Workers on the Transcontinental Railroad in Stanford and would like to obtain photographs of bunkhouses and/or cookhouses that existed at Section Stations along the CPRR in Nevada and Utah during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Does anyone have any that they would be willing to share or know where I might find them? ...
