Waterport produce business also offered “Good Coal”

WATERPORT – In this picture from a photographic post card we see a view of the railroad crossing at Waterport in 1911.
The produce business of George D. Thompson is most prominent. Painted in large letters we see “Apples, Beans and Wheat Wholesale & Commission.” On the side of the building facing the tracks is painted: “The Home of Good Coal.”
In the center of our photo is a flagman’s shanty at this RR crossing with two men sitting by it.
