Waiting for the Train on a Snow Day in Newark in 1899

The Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Baltimore’s Newark Delaware Train Station, designed by architect S. T. Fuller, opened in 1877.  Serving a college town of 3,000, it had separate waiting rooms for ladies and gentlemen and provided telegraph service.  After Amtrak closed the depot in the 1970s, the city of Newark acquired the building.   On a snowy day, February 14, 1899, a photographer snapped this scene.
