Photo is of Long Island Rail Road 195 which was on line by 1915 according to the 1915 ORER, along with sister 196.
The crane appears to be one of the numerous 70-tonners built by Industrial Works for the PRR, who later rebuilt them to 100-tonners.
PRR control also shows in the "five hole eye bolt" which replaced the conventional hook that was usually hanging from the main hoist.
