Pompeii Street View. Via Villa dei Misteri, with Station and Porta Marina entrance to Scavi.

 

1950s aerial view. Looking east. The station from Naples or Sorrento would be along the track near a small white building (above the letter Y of ITALY on the lower side of the photo). Slightly higher than the small white building would be an unexcavated area, including the area of the Suburban Baths. The larger building would be the Imperial Villa/Antiquarium, on the south side of the Porta Marina. From the station, the curving Via Villa dei Misteri can be seen. Photo courtesy of Rick Bauer.
