**   Ridley Park Station, on the Philadelphia, Wilmington, and Baltimore Rail Road .  **
 In one of my trips through the past, reading through an old Railroad Gazette of 1875 I found this Article. Attached were 2 drawings of this station when built. What a different time the Victorian age was. Here a Beautiful station is built not for the commuters of the time, but as a destination for people to enjoy life. The station was built in the middle of the park, on its highest point. Read for yourself. I need 3 posts for the three items I will post. First one of text. The next 2 are drawings.
