Happy Sepia Saturday! Today, I'll be showing you some photos I took in the town of Port Deposit which is located in Cecil County, Maryland.
Port Deposit is also located on the banks of the Susquehanna River and the location makes it vulnerable to floods.
Most of my photos were taken while driving through but a couple are from stopping at a little park there.
The entire town of Port Deposit was placed on the National Historic Register in 1978. When you drive or walk around Port Deposit, you can't help but notice the Port Deposit granite as it was mined from the quarries that once prospered there.
It's not unusual to see some haunting remnants of the past there. I find it to be a sad kind of beauty and wonder how long before some structures crumble away altogether.
I really love this next photo with the flag and windchimes...
...and the M48 Patton tank that sits outside of the Port Deposit VFW Post!
My last photo! I didn't plan to end my post with this one but seems a little fitting, I think, and so it was meant to be.
