Stopping at St. Thomas, Ontario (editor's title)

Depot scene at St. Thomas, Ontario
A depot scene with a main-line train on the left, passengers on the platform in the center, and passenger coach on the right, with St. Thomas's lowlying skyline in the background. A male figure leaning against a post seems posed, especially since his pipe is in precise sillhouette. The main line is New York Central, formerly Michigan Central. Interurban poles on the right are of the London & Port Stanley Railway.

Creator Description When he graduated from college in 1932, Kalmbach expected to work on the Pennsylvania Railroad electrification. Instead, he started a job printing company and founded "Model Railroader" and "Trains." As a corporate executive, he kept a Leica at his side.
Comments The David P. Morgan Memorial Library is the editorial library for magazines published by Kalmbach. Although the collection includes material covering non-railroad subjects, the majority of material is related to railroading, including a broad collection of books, visual artifacts, and approximately 100,000 black-and-white photographs. The library is not open to the public
in the usual sense, but the collection is available for some types of research, especially if it involves Kalmbach publications. The principal contact is Kevin P. Keefe, publisher. E-mail: kkeefe@kalmbach.com
