Glad I Got Them When I Did

July 19, 2022

I was going through some slides recently when I ran across three image of former Baltimore & Ohio structures in Ohio that are no longer standing.

The top two images are of the former passenger station in Dover. I stopped by there in August 2006. Although it had an R.J. Corman sign on it, the building was no longer being used. It was razed on April 9, 2013, after being in derelict condition for several years. It was located on West Third Street.

The bottom image shows the B&O freight station in Kent. Because I visited Kent quite frequently I often saw this structure but seldom photographed it.

This image was made on July 5, 2003, when I was in town to photograph the excursion trains that used to run during the Kent Heritage Festival. CSX razed this structure on Dec. 10, 2010. It was located a short distance south (railroad west) of the passenger station.

Today I look at these images and am glad I took the time to make them when I did. I now value them more than when I made these photographs.
