The earlier 1880-era Calverton station was north of the tracks (see 1924 map inset below -Emery 10/57). I date this image c. 1895 as there is a private road crossing in view and later images show a low level wooden station platform and high-level express platform across what once was the private crossing. Emery's map inset states the private road was closed in 1924, but as this image was scanned from a stereoscope card of two images, to allow for a 3-D view when viewed thru the old viewer, and as stereoscopes were all the rage in the 1890s before actual photography became popular and Brownie cameras were available to everyone, I date this c. 1895.  Research: Dave Keller
