Shortly after posting the image of the train depot from around 1960, before it was demolished in 1962, longtime former borough police chief, John Moody, wrote in with this memory:
“Not only did the train depot serve as a train station it also housed the post office, even after the trains stopped running. I liked going there to mail post cards, when you walked inside it was like stepping back in time. It also had a distinct closed-up bungalow odor. My first memories would date back to the mid to late
As a result, we dove back into the file archive and pulled this picture taken in the 1940s-50s showing the opposite side of the depot, from Beachwood Boulevard, when it was also used as the post office. Photo courtesy the Joan Disbrow-Morris collection.
