Freight Spur

Although the focus of the photographer’s attention in this photo is the driver and passenger of a small boat, it is more interesting for what can be seen in the background. One can see here an opening under the freight house loading platform that is wide enough for freight cars. Underneath the freight house on the right, a doorway can be seen, where freight could be delivered to the basement of the Weirs Cafe, and then on to the Mount Washington steamer.
