Black and White Photograph Train Station or Depot in the New Jersey Area, Bloom, A.J. (photographer).
1 Bloom, A.J. (photographer). Black and White Photograph Train Station or Depot in the New Jersey Area
No Place No Publisher no Unbound Fair 
Black and White Photograph Train Station or Depot in the New Jersey Area. Perhaps circa late 1800s, early 1900s. 8 1/4 by 6 1/4 inch photo mounted on a 12 by 10 inch beige matte board. No indication of where the train station is, with a sign out front being too washed out to read. A Wells Fargo Express sign is visible on the side of the building. This photo depicts four men, two in suits or vests and the other two in less formal attire, standing on the tracks in front of a train station. It is unclear whether the men work at the station or are travelers, although one appears to be carrying a fishing creel on his side. The station has a rather tall roof, very steeply pitched. The photographer's name, A.J. Bloom, with the location of Andover, New Jersey is printed on the bottom right of the matte. The photograph is in GOOD condition; the matte board is in POOR condition. A large 5 by 2 inch piece is torn off from the upper left corner, affecting the very upper left corner of the photo. A one inch piece is missing from the lower center edge. The corners of the matte are rounded, bumped, chipped and worn, especially the upper right. A two inch tear in the matte present at the upper edge, with a few smaller tears present. Some staining, foxing, soiling and general browning to the matte. A few small spots of ink present to the photo, with streaking visible, perhaps from the glue used to mount the photo. Some numbers present on the rear, in pencil.

14 No Author Black and White Photograph of Railroad Workers of the Hoosac Tunnel Route
No Place No Publisher no Unbound Fair 
No author/photographer given. Black and White Photograph of Railroad Workers of the Hoosac Tunnel Route. Probably circa late 1800s, early 1900s. 8 1/2 by 6 1/2 inch photo mounted on a 12 by 10 inch black matte board. The actual railroad company or line is uncertain, although Hoosac is present on a boxcar, with the words tunnel and Route partially cropped off. This is presumably a picture of workers from a northeastern, perhaps Massachusetts or New York based rail line, depicting several rows of men in various outfits ranging from suits to overalls. The boxcar is wooden, with the door open and a few men standing in the doorway. The Hoosac tunnel was completed in 1875, allowing trains to pass through the mountains in northwestern Massachusetts. The photograph is in GOOD condition; the matte board is in POOR condition. A large piece is torn off from the lower right corner, with heavy bumping, chipping, tearing and rounding at the other corners. Some scuffs and superficial scrapes to the surface of the board. The photo itself has a few faint stains, with minor scuffing.
