The Reading Company technical & Historical Society lists DY as Doylestown on their list. Very interested in your input on this. Your comments have already lead me to information which I had not previously seen.
This is a view of Yardley, PA from the West looking toward the tower, station, freight house and in the distance, the canal bridge leading to The West Trenton RR Bridge. This is the first photo I have seen of Yardley tower from ground level !
This photo is attributed to Henry Wilhelm / West Conn Chapter - NRHS Collection May 1930
Reading announced its plan to electrify the line in December of 1927. Electric powered service started on this line in July of 1931. I believe this photograph is most likely earlier than May 1930 as the electrical substation, overhead supports and catenary wires are not yet in place.
