"London & Port Stanley Railway train stops at a passenger shelter in Union, April 20, 1952", ca. 1985. On the back of the postacard, it states: "A southbound London & Port Stanley train pauses at the small passenger shelter at Union, Ontario, on April 20, 1952. The three cars, Nos. 16, 23 and 8, were acquired from the Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Co. in 1941 to handle extra wartime passenger service on the L7PS. Two of the cars are preserved at the Illinois Railway Museum. But the station survives in its original location, hosting passengers on the diesel-powered Port Stanley Terminal Rail, which operates the southern portion of the former L&PS. Port Stanley is on Lake Erie, about 50 km. south of London".

Scope and Content
View of the inner harbour and harbour bridge, Port Stanley, looking northwest, ca. 1910. View includes a few steam-powered fishing and pleasure boats, what appears to be a dredge scow (right), and the Main Station or Depot for the London and Port Stanley Railway. Houses or cottages are visible in the background on top of the hill behind the L & PS Station. The bridge shown in this photograph was removed in 1937 to allow for the construction of the King George VI Lift Bridge, which was officially opened in May, 1939. The fish tug that is pictured second-from-left (with the collapsed turtle at the stern and damaged starboard side) is the John R. Moore. She was built in 1911, and not fully turtled over for a few years after built, so photo would be 1915 or later. File includes:

Scope and Content
Incline railway powerhouse and observation tower, Port Stanley, ca. 1880. William Fraser built the incline railway in the 1870s to allow guests at the Fraser House hotel on Fraser Heights to conveniently travel to and from the main beach. The observation tower was built adjacent to the incline railway as an attraction for visitors. The incline railway was originally powered by a steam locomotive. It was purchased by the London and Port Stanley Railway and electrified in 1915. The incline railway ceased operating ca. 1963 when its open cars were deemed unsafe and the owners decided it was not cost effective to convert to closed cars. File includes:
