The building on the right in the background is the original 1869 station, situated between the present structure and York Street. When the present structure was opened, the archway — for carriages, not railway cars — was removed, and the remainder relocated to the corner of Northumberland and Victoria streets, where today it is housing apartments. This image is from the HF Albright (July 30, 1898), Walter Long Collection.
