Description:
Frank Lees caption: “The railroad from Philadelphia reached Media in October 1854 and was continued to West Chester in 1858, This station, not being the first, was built in 1881. Due to lack of upkeep this beautiful Victorian station was torn and replaced by a one store brick structure. The first month of operation of the new railroad, 25,000 passengers used the trains to and return from Philadelphia. This scene, circa 1900, shows folks awaiting a train to West Chester. The bridge carries Orange Street over the tracks and was replaced two years ago.” Unsure when the preceding note was written. This is a copy of an original photo; source not noted
