Terminal Station


Another detail, located near the Terminal Station is the "subway" which was actually a tunnel under the Terminal Station.  The tunnel included a streetcar stop midway through the tunnel by which passengers could enter the Station by using a stairway.  The tunnel is still in place, although, sadly the Terminal Station was torn down for a proposed development that has yet to take place.  The photo is from Street Railways, page 66.

The photo below shows Terminal Station, built 1907, looking east from downtown, with the tunnel passing beneath the station.
