PHILLIPSBURG, MO ‘FRISCO RAILWAY STATION about 1918

St. Louis & San Francisco Railway, Frisco Line, Phillipsburg, MissouriThis is a snapshot photo taken by Reba McMenus (Harrill) when she was a teenager in Phillipsburg, Missouri.  The town was on the Frisco Line (the St. Louis & San Francisco Railway) and her father, John McMenus, was station master.   Note the board on the right which listed the times of the eastbound and westbound trains, and the luggage which is sitting on the porch to the right.  No idea who the folks are in the photo, but the boys look as if they are saying goodbye to the girl who is waiting for the train.
