Reading Depot  Contributor's Pick!       
The Reading depot in Skillman, New Jersey was a grand three-story structure. Call letters were SK. Skillman, N.J. was named after Abraham J. Skillman. William Newton Skillman, was station agent there from 1893 to 1938. This building was apparently razed sometime in the 1960s. As an aside, CKF's mother, who probably drove him over to take this picture, worked for many years at a real-estate agency called Skillman & Skillman.
