Skala Railroad Station
|Skala's railway station (1916). The station was built at the turn of the century and later was expanded. The caption above the lower half of the photo may be translated: "Custom house in Russia." Prior to World War I, Skala was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the River Zbrucz formed the border with Russia. During this period, there was a Russian custom-house across the river from Skala, which was mentioned in a story written in Yiddish by Skala native Fradel Shtok.|
