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.

As you think, so will you be.

The CNJ shed in Jersey City is very similar although I understand it lacks expansion joints in the roof structure.

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.

 

As you think, so will you be.
