Changes to the Station
These two images are from opposite ends of the station. The c. 1920 image is looking west from the eastbound platform, while the 1965 image is looking east from the westbound platform.
In the c. 1920 picture, note the waiting room on the east bound side of the tracks. It was torn down in the late 1970's. Also gone are the full length platforms. [
] Before they were shortened, the platforms extended to the 82nd Avenue overpass. Steps from the overpass allowed riders to enter and leave the station from the west end.
