Everything Vintage

May 20, 2014

Hi!  I am trying so hard to post at least 2/3 times a week - it's not easy when you are working full time.  I try to use my commute time in the morning & evening to catch up with reading all the wonderful craft blogs and getting inspired ..... which really makes it even harder to not want to do anything than just craft all day.  Oh well, hopefully one day soon!

I take the commuter train to Washington, D.C. from Germantown - which has a somewhat vintage looking train station. Clearly, the station has some history which was first built in 1878.

It was later taken down when Ephraim Francis Baldwin was appointed the head architect for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and re-built in 1891.  In 1978 vandals burned down the station ... but with the help of federal funding and the original plans of Francis Baldwin, which were archived at the B & O Railroad Historical Society, it was reconstructed on the original site in 1987.  Currently the train operates between West Virginia and Washington, DC along the Brunswick line.


Along the lines of every thing Vintage, here are a few more pictures of what I have collected at the lake house.

Until next time .....................
