Image description: Volume 10 [formerly Volume 106]:
Very few photographs in this volume are annotated but those that are indicate a date range of 1940 to 1941. There are several photos of automobiles in the “park and ride” lot at 69th Street Terminal, which serviced several different companies including PTC, Philadelphia Suburban Transportation Company (also known as Red Arrow), and Philadelphia and Western Railway, one of whose lines is now the SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line. There are photographs of employees in a trainmen’s room (with engineers and motormen identifiable by their overalls); elevated stations on the Market-Frankford Line or “Market Street – El” in West Philadelphia and at 24th Street (the underground portal at that time being at 22nd Street, further east than today}; and a large Horn & Hardart Automat sign being painted on a building near 52nd Street Station.
