Description Photo postcard of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Terminal, Hoboken, N.J., no date, ca. 1907-1909.

Divided back not inscribed or posted. Photograph by W. B. Barry, Jr. who was also the publisher.

View is looking east of toward the passenger shed with terminal and tower beyond. In detail view, the photographer's mark can be seen under the control tower at the left with his initials and image number. New terminal opened in 1907.

This photo dates from the first two or three years of the new railroad and ferry terminal since the Public Service Railway Terminal which opened in 1910 is not seen. The facade of the ferry portion of the terminal would have been blocked by the double-level streetcar terminal which was built on the south side of Hudson Place where the PATH entrances are found and buses now operate.

Stock no. F.R. 276. Information as found on reverse: Published by W.B. Barry, Jr. This Card is a REAL PHOTOGRAPH on bromide paper. The Rotograph Co., N.Y. City. (Printed in Germany).
