Remarks & Notes 
It is still hard to believe that the Southern Crescent had to call at this pitiful remnant of Terminal Station. Built in 1909, and torn down in 1969 (just 5 years before this photo), Terminal Station was a magnificent facility that more than held its own - IMO - when compared to all but a handful of the grandest U.S. stations.
