ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Taken September 1942, Richwood, West Virginia, United States
(Library of Congress)
"The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) was the first steam-operated railway in the United States, to be chartered as a common carrier of freight and passengers in 1827. This particular route of B&O was the Baltimore & Ohio Richwood Branch, which extended over a hundred miles from from Clarksburg to Richwood, completed in 1901. Richwood, unsurprisingly named for its abundance of timber, boomed by 1930s as a thriving industrial town; home to then the world's largest clothespin factory as well as industry ranging from glassmaking to leather sole plants. The railway was abandoned by the 1980s."

This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
