Wellsville NY Freight Station.....

Erie Freight Depot WLSV Sweney No27

The exact date for this Sweney Art Shop Postcard #27 is unknown, believed to be after 1900.  This copy is scanned a few years ago from archives of David A. Howe Public Library folder.  The building still stands, although no longer railroad property, rather is used as a warehouse at the same location by a business on Railroad Avenue/Loder Street.
