There are hundreds of these, showing every rr station imaginable, from huge urban "Union Stations" to tiny little rural depots. Like factory postcards, its a genre I can't resist. By the way, the term Union Station doesn't have to do with the Civil War or or the U.S. particularly, but the fact that these were consolidated stations that served multiple railroads. In the early days, each of the major passenger rr companies built their own stations in big cities - a situation which was obviously not sustainable.
