All aboard - From Sandy Williams' book, "Images of America - Hinsdale" this view of the 'new' train station was taken from Washington Street looking east. She says, "After years of Hinsdale's complaints and requests, the Burlington railroad agreed to replace its aging original Washington Street station. A new site was chosen on the north side of Hinsdale Avenue one block east of the original structure." The photo is from 1907 and the station was completed in 1899.
