    The etching of Grand Central is great! But were there really no buildings immediately southeast of it or was this an early version of “Photoshopping” out buildings that would have been in the way?

    Image 25 (“etching, origin unknown”) is the Pennsylvania Railroad’s first Rockville Bridge across the Susquehanna River a few miles north of Harrisburg, PA. It was a single track wooden structure opened in 1849. It was later replaced with an iron bridge and then, in 1902, the landmark “longest stone-arch bridge in the world” that’s still in use today.

    And speaking of stone arch bridges, the Red River Valley Line river-and-cityscape with the curved bridge and the terminal and suspension bridge in the distance is particularly wonderful.
