THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WEDNESDAY, JANUAKY 15, 1913. '
Terminal of Line Located at
Fourteenth Street and New
The announcement of the opening of
a new railway station a spacious at
tractive rendezvous for' electric traffic-
was made ln.W&shlngton today. It is
the terminal of the Washington. Baltl
tnoret and, Annapolis railway in the
northeast angle of the Bond building,
Fourteenth street and New York ave
The event was accomplished without
the fanfare of trumpets or the formali
ties ,or a dedication. The new station
shines eloquently in contrast with the.
o'ld, and reflects the growth of inter
urban traffic as'well as being a hostage"
to future continuous development.
When President G. T. Bishop, of the
Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis,
arrived Jn the city today witli
Doyle, general manager of the com--pany,
one glance of Inspection at
the terminal proclaimed his satis
faction with it, and hta views were
echoed by those of the traveling public
which used it. "His subordinates. In
cluding C W. A. .Fletcher, district pas
senger agent, were .elated over the
change in quarters from the narrow
and cramped station which the" com
pany used for more 'than two years.
The new station is"V rectangular room
running along New Yorfc avenue and
Fourteenth street to the main entrances
of the Bond building. It can easily seat
sixty to seventy-five persons when all
tlie benches are installed and contains
all the latest ideas in terminal equip
ment. The ticket offices are on the
fourteenth street side, and in the angle
ofhe intersection the office of District
Passenger Agent Fletcher has been
placed. In the opposite angle four tele
phone booths have been installed, and
In the center of the room a stairway
Jeads down to the baggage room and
the convenience rooms.
"With windows running the entire
length of both streets, the station Is
extremely airy and well lighted. There
lias, been no attempt at decoration,' and
It has been "'decided not to install a
news and cigar stand in order to em
phasize the "domestic side of the
To Utilize Switch.
The Baltimore and Annapolis cars will,
as heretofore, run through to Fifteenth
street, and will utilize the switch there
between runs. The stops in front of
the station will be brief, since the tracks
are also utilized for urban traffic, and
a good announcing service will be In
stalled. All patrons of the road today were
presented with an illustrated booklet
dealing with 'Colonial Annapolis." in
honor of the station opening. This
was the cajy ceremony. -in "connection
with the event. - .
Wc are "proud -of our, station." said
President Bishop today. "It Is as good
as the one in Baltimore. We will aim
to keep it up to the highest notch of
efficiency and to please the public. It
occupies a pivotal and commanding posi
tion in relation to the city's street car
lines and connections from all points
in the city are easily made. To wait in
this station is almost as comfortable
as to wait in one's home or one's of
fice." Outside Interference
