Benton, Lewis Herbert (1872-1939)
Photograph of the Groton, Connecticut, railroad station, taken by Lewis Herbert Benton. [This description was contributed by Robert Joseph Belletzkie: This is a great shot of a beautiful station, graced by a turret acting as receptacle for telegraph wire. The date helps to define the intervening chronology of Benton’s numbered photos. The human-interest subject here appears to be a passenger, sporting necktie and hat; his satchel and umbrella is to the right of the baggage cart. This depot stood at the junction of the Shore Line and the Norwich & Worcester Railroad, the Groton Extension to this point completed in 1899.]
