An early view of A Bethlehem Pennsylvania Station named Union Depot. The two locomotives date the drawing. To me, the near one is 1840's. The one on the far track is smaller and earlier. Possibly late 1830's.  
 The Union Depot was built by two Railroads on the south side of the Lehigh River, by the North Pennsylvania Railroad, and the Lehigh Valley Railroad.

A photo of the old station. A few years before it was replaced. It was located in South Bethlehem. There is another station in Bethlehem. It is still there today. It was built by the Lehigh and Susquehanna Railroad, and then the Central Railroad of New Jersey I have a picture of that station someplace.
