To further the North Street Station topic, I found this image at the NS Archives, circa 1880:



The image I posted previously was circa 1902, and looks like the sheltered path/stairway to Barrington (this section was actually called Lockman St. at the time) and the King Edward Hotel had been removed by then.

What I like about this photo is that it shows the bottom of North Street coming down in front of the station, thus locating it a little better in my mind.

The city atlas from 1878 confirms this (from NS Archives).



Just trying to get a better "feel" for the station. I'm hoping to find some pics of the inside (pre-explosion). There is also a bunch of post-explosion material to look at as well.
