Thank you Zathros, It kind of looks like what existed One Hundred Seventy-Nine years ago. It is the best till someone else makes a better one. To bad the Depot just didn't make the age of photography. I do feel that somewhere in a private collection is other lithographs or drawings of this first railroad depot on the Hudson River.


I am sure that somewhere, stashed away, there is much more information. Your model prominently displayed could draw that out. ;)

I see a lot of your images didn't make the transfer to the new format as well. has anyone heard what the maximum file size is? I have a setting on my camer that I think works, but if I knew for sure what the maximum was I could edit stuff from my phone down.

1024 x 768. It's best to do these things from your computer as cameras have much metadata, which makes the file much larger than it need be. I use XNView to strip the file and re-size images. It's totally FREE and the best program on the 'net you can use for image manipulation. There may be a mobile version, not sure. My fingers are too fat to try and do that kind of stuff, even though my LG V440 ThinQ has a 6.5" diagonal screen. All those years as a machinists, I guess. :)
