Thank goodness, you guys were scaring me (or pitying me for putting out such a ridiculously easy one)
 
Yes, we are looking at Croxton Yard circa 1973.

What about THIS one? Still easy, but you might need to summon your "EL-VEE" powers of deduction to figure it out if you're not from the Valley.

Maybe he just washed his hands and can't do a thing with them  
 
The new photo is Easton with the tower cut off.   IF that's right, interesting to see blades and search lights on the bridge.

Ha! I did it AGAIN!
 
This is what happens when you grow up in New Jersey, and then decide to become a LV fan! The funny part is, I read what I typed, stopped, second guessed myself, and then said , "no, THAT'S right!" Big dummy.......
 
So now, I REALLY get the joke!

Home field advantage!
 
But yes, it's Palmerton!
 
As you can see, it's what was missing from the cropped photo that ID's it, just like I said!

Until today, I didn't know that this was the birthplace of a man who hung out with Empire Builders Henry Flagler and Henry Rogers. I wonder if, as a child, his dreams of big industry were fueled by the railroad?

Clearboard is correct, this is Richford, NY, circa 1908, back in the days when the depot was the center of small (and large) town life.
