  1. A quick look at the Early Black & White Photos Folder revealed a number of errors in the captions.
    #1 Should read 1950’s not 1970’s.
    # 6 Should read 1960’s not 1970’s
    # 7 Should read 1950’s not 1970’s
    #9 Location is Boston not Hoosac NY
    # 14 Location is Boston not Hoosac Diamond
    # 15 The correct spelling of the station is Spuyten Duyvil
    #16 Should read “looking east” not looking west.
    #20 The railroad was the New York Central’s Boston & Albany Division not Baltimore & Annapolis

    1. Thanks for pointing out these errors. The fault is mostly mine for either misreading or misunderstanding Vic’s instructions. All of the captions have been corrected.
