Baker Street PRR Depot Conceptual Rendering

The attached postcard shows PRR's 1914 depot on the east side of Harrison in a different configuration than its as-built configuration west of Harrison. PRR intended to build the depot east of Harrison where it already owned real estate, but switched to the west side. I don't know the reason.

This postcard is postmarked August 1915, 19 months after the depot was opened west of Harrison.
