Fairly certain the people from Monroe, Arkansas would also disagree with you about the "correct" pronunciation.

I’ve always been fascinated by local pronunciations. Monroe, LA is pronounced MUN’row, not MonROE -  that is if your from there. The rest of us pronounce it correctly. Not sure which railroads served Monroe.

Charlotte (pronounce Shar-LOT, not SHAR-let) was served by the New York Central. While not a direct connection to the shops in East Rochester, given that the steel mill has been shut down for some 20 years by the time of the photo, it would make sense that the NYC was using it for storage.
