April 27, 2010 - Flintstone, Md To Wilson's Bridge

Recommended Posts

I have lots of pix still unedited but it was a glorious day. Here's a link to some photos on Facebook.


Abandoned road west of Flintstone, MD. (West Wilson)





Beautiful shots! Are you going "artsey?" The stairs and the barn are terrific!




Keep the Show on the Road!

Thanks, Dave!

I've added a board to the NationalRoadForum and to Facebook called "Wish You Were Here... Postcards From the National Road." I'm hoping to introduce photography buffs to the joys of photographing the old Road. :D


I working my way through both new and old photos and produced (3) new Deja Views. All three were pretty much happenstance as opposed to premeditated shots...


The first is the old Mckenzie Inn on top of Polish Mountain east of Flintstone, MD. I believe the house on the right is the what's left of the McKenzie.



I have no doubt the structures in the photos below are the same.



Finally, this shot of Hancock's Main St. is close, and would be closer if I had the original postcard with me for reference.



I added a lot of new photos in the Park Head to Fairview Photo section and the Clear Spring Photo section.


In the Park Head section, you'll see, what I believe is evidence of the section of the National Road that ran between the WMD RR and the C&O Canal as seen in this postcard from Alex Burr.
