I’m sure a number of you have been through Penn Station at least once, if not more. Especially those of you living in New York City. This beautiful old photo of the railroad station taken in 1910 is a far more romantic view of train travel back in the day. Now, there’s a mad dash and chaos that ensues when boarding a train there.
