Old Depot

Old train depot near Fork Union, Virginia.

Before there was air conditioning, the residents of Richmond would head to the country during the summer to escape the heat trapped and radiated by the buildings and concrete. Not far west is a small town called Fork Union (today best known for its military school).

The train would stop at this depot and adjacent, on a hill, was a inn.

The train would also carry produce from the country back to the city.

Today, the tracks are gone, and the depot has been converted an antique store. I shot through a side window toward the window on the front of the building in order to capture the old glass bottles that had been placed inside against a lace curtain. Look closely and you can see some of the old wall paper and woodwork as well.
