Riverside Station Workers - 1932
This is a sample of the luggage handled by the crew at Riverside on a busy summer day. A news report from 1919 told that this station handled up to 300 passengers and 400 trunks on a busy day in the summer due to the many camps in the area. The station usually had 3-5 employees which included an agent/telegrapher, ticket agent, express agent, freight agent and one or two helpers.
