Earlier in the week I posted how The Old Depot is now an arts and crafts store, but here is it's original purpose, when trains carried families to Black Mountain from Asheville as well as points east and south.
I begin the October series of my submissions to Sepia Saturday with The Old Depot in Black Mountain, NC.
Sepia Saturday's meme for October is "From here to There."
I have a most enjoyable collection of photos and postcards, by Standaert and Standaert...on the Swannanoa Valley, and using the Black Mountain depot photo as their cover photo. This river valley has many towns located in it, and Black Mountain is one of them.
Whenever I think it's too hot or humid in summertime Black Mountain, I remember what it must be like in the majority of the south. Living with a glass of iced tea (or other favorite beverage) and rocking on a front porch is second only to staying in the water of a lake or pool or beach! We've got the nicest breezes through the trees, coming up or down the mountain slopes.
Steam Engines still are around, and a tourist outing was held last year, and probably will be held again, of Engine No. 611. Here's a glimpse of it.
Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
