Vintage Parkville-Overlea: The Railroad Foreman's House

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

Until about the middle of the 20th century, a railroad ran right through the heart of Baltimore County, ferrying passengers from Baltimore to York, PA.

In the Parkville-Overlea area, the Maryland and Pennsylvania (or Ma & Pa) railroad had stops at Oakleigh and Loch Raven. Passenger service along the railroad line was discontinued by 1954, and by 1958 sections of the railroad south of the Mason-Dixon line had been abandoned.

The home pictured in this January 1940 photograph belonged to the foreman of the Ma & Pa railroad.

Do you know where it was located? Check out a map of the Ma & Pa railroad on Wikipedia.

The photo was downloaded from the Baltimore County Public Library's Legacy Web photo collection.
