DAVE KELLER POINTS OUT AN ERROR
I realized your image no longer shows the switch in front of the depot or the run-around track south of the main. I looked at the Emery SUNY map of this location and he states the switch and run-around track were removed c. 1933. So this view, despite the fact that it looks really old, what with the Dietz kerosene platform lamps still in place, had to have been shot around that time. Also note that the valuation image you have posted ABOVE this one, is also dated 1918, but it shows vines crawling up the building AND a wooden platform in place as well as the crossover visible in the foreground.
MANY THANKS DAVE!
