I thought I would do a Throwback Thursday article. This is a popular thing to do on Facebook, and yes I have commented on a picture or thrown a picture or two in myself. Today I am showing a place in an old photograph and what it looks like today. All older photographs are from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Public Library or the Charlotte Mecklenburg Historic Landmarks Commission and the newer photos have been taken by me.
Today, let us look at the intersection of 4th Street and Queens Road, which is the entrance to Myers Park. Back when this photo was taken, the tree cover had not been planted yet:
According to the library, the trolley entrance was designed by John Nolen and built by the Stephens Company of Winnsboro, South Carolina. Here what it looks like today:
While the trolley entrance is long gone, the two shelters are still there. Please look for another entry next Thursday when I show you a location from the past and what it looks like now.
