Vintage Parkville-Overlea: Overlea Lumber
For the second week in a row, our vintage photo comes from the Overlea Community Association's Doris Franz-Poling.
Isn't this picture awesome?
The Overlea Lumber building featured in the foreground is now the parking lot of Rosedale Federal Bank, on the corner of Belair Road and Northern Parkway.
The photo was posted to the Overlea Community Assocation Facebook page by member Doris Franz-Poling.
In fact, according to Franz-Poling whose father George Franz took this photo, the tiny street that runs off to the left of the frame is actually now Northern Parkway, if you can believe that.
The hilly street in the background, said Overlea Community Association member Kim King, is Spruce Avenue where it now runs behind the Rosedale Federal Bank.
Steven Stout, another OCA member, pointed out a really cool, throwback detail —check out the streetlamp in the bottom left of the picture.
