Jerseyville


Some signs from the TH&B
at Jerseyville Railway Station.
 Built in 1896 it was the first building to be moved to Westfield Historical Village

and was used in both the movie Anne of Green Gables and the tv series Road to Avonlea 
where it stood in for Bright River

Interesting signs. I am thinking that until the 1930s people did not 'return' from those destinations.

I'm glad it wasn't me who had to set the clock beck then. I would have gotten distracted and gotten it wrong. I think I would have waited until it was 10 minutes late. Less confusion that way.

I would have loved to travel by train back then. What sights there must have been to see.

Looks like a cools place. But 10 seconds SLOW? Seriously? People cared about that?
