Our photo of Parkville-Overlea history this week comes courtesy of the Facebook group "You Know You're From Parkville, Md When..." and it's a good one. Dating back 50 years, this photo shows a section of a now-highly-trafficked roadway that connects Parkville to Overlea and points beyond. Can you guess where it was taken and what it shows? There's a hint written onto the photo, which was originally posted to Facebook by user Nancy Ellen-Roche Rhoda. "You know you're from Parkville and that you're old if you watched them build ... between ... and ... back in 1962," she wrote in her original posting. References to what is being built and where have been removed. Share your best guess and your memories of Parkville-Overlea in the comments!
