Joe, who works for the Philadelphia Inquirer, added: "The Philadelphia Inquirer Building (our home until June) was built on the Baldwin site after the company moved to Eddystone in the 1920s."
I trust Joe's information over the cryptic information I initially posted, which mentioned "Lima."
I am not clear whether this locomotive pulled passenger cars or freight, or both. Note that the "cow catcher" has seen better days. I am sure the same could be said for the cows.
