Photograph of the Norwich, Connecticut, railroad station, taken by Lewis Herbert Benton. [This information was provided by Richard A. Fleischer: The architectural firm Shepley, Rutan, and Coolidge received the commission for the Norwich Union Station from the New London Northern Railroad in 1891. In Benton's photo, the main line of the Central Vermont Railway, lessor of the NLN, is at the left, and the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad connection is at the right. Norwich Union Station was built over the west channel of the Yantic River, and was severely damaged by flooding in the Hurricane of 1938.]
