Photographs of Pelham Manor Station and the City Island Station on the Branch Line Published in 1916

On Tuesday, May 22, 2007 I published to the Historic Pelham Blog an item entitled "Photograph of Pelham Manor Station on the Branch Line Published in 1908". Today's posting includes a photograph published in 1916 that was taken from a different location of the same station. It also includes a second photograph showing the City Island Station published at the same time. Following the photographs is a brief transcription of pertinent text that accompanied the photograph and a citation to the source.

"A few examples of two-, four- and six-track stations, showing different arrangements for reaching the tracks and trains, are shown in the illustrations herewith. The pictures in Fig. 156 are views of the New York, New Haven & Hartford's six-track stations at Port Morris, Hunt's Point, Woodside, Pelham Manor, Morris Park, Westchester Avenue and City Island, N. Y. . . .

Pelham Manor was built of stone to harmonize with an existing retaining wall which was a feature of the station approach."
