Benton, Lewis Herbert (1872-1939)
Photograph of the Broad Brook railroad station located in the town of East Windsor, Connecticut, taken by Lewis Herbert Benton sometime after May 30 but before June 23, 1929. [Additional information from Richard A. Fleischer: Broad Brook was located on the Armory Branch between East Hartford, Connecticut, and Springfield, Massachusetts. The Brill gas-electric car at the left was a cost-saving measure of the 1920s which provided minimal branch line passenger service more economically than a steam locomotive and passenger cars. Benton and his traveling companion Irving Drake watched a mail sack being handled between the station and the car.]
