Is now on the National Register Of Historic Places!  Built by the Philadelphia & Reading and serving SEPTA passengers today.  Here's the story:

I've been there, a very impressive old building!

And it once had good electric rail service on both sides of the building, since Lehigh Valley Transit's Liberty Bell line was in the  street at the building entrance.

Some runs were timed to make connections.

Thanks David!  You'd never know it seeing the site today, there's no trace of the Liberty Bell line at all, or mention of it at the site.
