Vintage Parkville-Overlea: Fire Department Fundraiser

Do you know where in the greater Parkville-Overlea area this photo was taken?

Check out this interesting peek into Parkville history.

At this Parkville Volunteer Fire Company fundraiser way back in 1922, men, women, and children pose for a photo.

The building to the far left of the photo is the old firehouse, directly to the right of that is the Gonce house—once a dry-goods shop—and all the way to the right, barely in the photo is Kilchenstein's store.

Kilchenstein's was once located at a major Parkville intersection. Do you know which one?

This photo, originally published by Marjorie Miller in 1922, was downloaded from the Baltimore County Public Library Legacy Web photo collection.

Share your best guess as to where the photo was taken and your memories of the old days of Parkville and Overlea in the comments.

I've been told the original building for the Fire Station is still standing on the north side of Taylor Avenue just west of Harford Rd. Arlone

The intersection would be Taylor Ave & Harford Road.
