Description

SV362 — Nelson Dionne Collection. View looking south at the Eastern Railroad depot from Town House Square, with Washington Street visible.

Published by J.S. Lefavour, Salem, Mass., c. 1878-92.

Built in 1847, the Salem Depot, with a stone facade resembling a medieval castle, stood for over a century before being demolished in 1954-55; at the same time, a new railroad tunnel was built under the site. The site is now occupied by the intersection of Washington and New Derby Street, along with Riley Plaza.
