Torrington, Connecticut, railroad station, ca. 1900, a photo by Archives at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center on Flickr.
The Torrington, Connecticut, railroad station was built in 1898, as a stop on the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad (better known as the New Haven Railroad). The line was originally built as the Naugatuck Railroad, which traveled from Devon north to Winsted, beginning in 1849.
We’ve placed ten photographs of the Torrington station from the Railroad History Collections on to Flickr — check them out at our photostream, beginning at http://www.flickr.com/photos/doddcenter/tags/torrington/. Let us know what you think of them!
