    My friend, Ken Steinhoff has posted pictures of the Frisco Depot in Advance, Mo that he took in 1966 as the tracks were being removed after abandonement in 1965. You can find them on his blog;

    Ken is a retired photojournalist, originally from Cape Girardeau and is at risk of becoming a train buff due to exposure to me and our excellent forum. His excellent blog is focused on Southeast Missouri in the mid-sixties and features his photographic talent.

    From Richard Crabtree on the Frisco Rails Across Missouri Facebook group:
    He we are at the Frisco Depot in Advance, Missouri on The Frisco River Division ~ Hoxie Sub-Division. The railroad came to town in 1883 and the town was founded the same year, the depot was built there after.
