1862 to 1968 Georgetown Comparison

From the book, Georgetown Architecture, THE WATERFRONT, Selections from the Historic American Buildings Survey, Number 4, comes this neat side-by-side shot of the waterfront.

I especially like the two B&O and one SCL box cars visible in the new yard. By now the overhead crane had been dismantled and removed. In a few years, the yard would be paved over to become a parking lot.

As a sidebar, and linked above, you can read the entire book on the Internet Archive! https://archive.org/details/georgetownarchit04comm/
