Main Street Station, roughly 48 years before the construction of I-95/Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike would obscure this view forever. Main Street Station was built in 1901, and passenger service continued until the mid 70s. The building survived a major fire in 1983, and a failed mall a few years later. Passenger service returned in 2003. I especially like the horse cart in this photo that says "PHONE 1203" with a backwards N. Click the photo for the high resolution image.
