No. This is an old photo of 55th St station. It was actually located on 56th St. The grain elevator in the distance was adjacent to PRR's 55th St Yard. The elevator is listed in the 1923 PRR CT1000 document, but not seen in a 1938 aerial photo.
Here is a Barriger photo of C&WI's 55th St Station. The photo is looking north toward 51st St Yard.
[The Erie Grain Elevator is in the background just to the left of the station.]
The yellow rectangle highlights this station and the blue rectangle is around the grain elevator.
