Broad Brook railroad station

Photograph of the Broad Brook railroad station located in the town of East Windsor, Connecticut, taken by Lewis Herbert Benton sometime after May 30 but before June 23, 1929. [Additional information from Richard A. Fleischer: Broad Brook was located on the Armory Branch between East Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts. The Brill gas-electric car at the left was a cost-saving measure of the 1920s which provided minimal branch line passenger service more economically than a steam locomotive and passenger cars. Benton and his traveling companion Irving Drake watched a mail sack being handled between the station and the car.]
