This is a postcard postmarked 1911 and mailed from East Orange, NJ to Providence, RI. The card shows the platforms and trainsheds of the new DL&W terminal in Hoboken, NJ. New to my collection. Be sure to look at the next photo down for a close-up view of the passenger cars!
Other than the platforms being cracked in places and the awning needs a paint job, Hoboken still looks pretty much the same. I love the wrought iron gates that the platform attendants roll closed before trains depart. Gives the place a European touch.
I was searching the web for old pictures of the Hoboken Terminal and ran across this recent photo. This picture caught my eye for two reasons. First, it shows track 6 and that is where my first train of the day on week days departs from. Secondly, the fellow second from the right with the backpack is my engineer Pete.
