Reading Depot  Contributor's Pick!       
The Reading depot in Skillman was the closest railroad location for CKF growing up and was where he developed a lifelong love of the Reading. He was 12-years-old when he took this photograph. Note the 1933 Chevrolet, the four track main, the Camp Meeting Avenue overpass, and the gentleman at the door, who may have been the agent. Skillman merited this large station building as it was the home to the New Jersey State Village for Epileptics.
