Gary Roe is correct.  To be more specific, this photo looks more or less due north, and downtown Fort Worth is in the distance on the left.  The 1899 Santa Fe station still exists, and it's now the 'event space' for the Ashton Hotel, which is not visible in this shot since it's only six stories tall..  It started its life as the Fort Worth Club.  There is a hotel visible in the distance just to the right of the station's roof, which is the Fort Worth Hilton now.
