Thurmond Depot

I enjoyed pairing this historic recreation with the paraphanalia of contemporary life. West Virginia lovingly restored parts of it's coal mining history. I wonder what it looked like then, I imagine it in black & white. The coal mining and railroading lasted for 30 years, from around 1890 to 1920. Coal barons, workers and drama; all memories now.
