    The brochure lists “Grand Central Station”. In those days, I suppose it was not a “Terminal”.

      Correct. It was originally Grand Central Depot, before being renovated into Grand Central Station, and then in 1913 Grand Central Terminal.

    Hi Emily – Thanks for posting this article with the photos. My great-great-grandfather, James W. Daly actually bred some of the trotters that raced in harness races at the fair. He had stables in Mount Kisco off of Bedford Road. My great-great-grandfather’s company was actually working on the Harlem River to New Rochelle stretch of the NYNHRR line when he died in 1908. Where did you find the photos from the fair? I know that my great-uncle actually offered the stable grounds for the fair one year. I can dig up the article if you would like it.

    Thanks again for your posts.

    Jim Daly
