    Broad and Prime Street Station, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1856
    Abraham Lincoln's funeral train leaves Harrisburg and rolls across the Pennsylvania countryside to Philadelphia
    Philadelphia, PA. Wshington Avenue was called Prime Street before the Civil War, and was an important trans-shipment center for the whole country. Rail traffic from New York and New England came through New Jersey on the Camden and (Perth)Amboy RR, disembarked, and ferried over the Delaware to the foot of Prime Street/Washington Avenue. Passengers then took horse-drawn cabs up Prime Street to Broad, or else they walked. At that point, travelers bound for further South would enter the imposing Rail terminus of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore RR, to re-embark. Philadelphia hotel operators hoped they would stay overnight; Philadelphia merchants hoped they would just transact their business locally, then go back home.

    Not listed in 1895 Advertisement Fire House #29, 4[SUP]th[/SUP] Street Above Girard

    Amweg left Philly in 1899 to build a railroad in Hawaii before settling down in San Francisco and California for the rest of his life. He is many times listed as a Colonel Amweg because of his rank in the California National Guard.
