Piedmont Air Line railroad dock along Light Street


View of the Piedmont Air Line railroad dock at Light Street in Baltimore, Maryland. The sign above the docks reads "Pier 2 / Piedmont Air Line / via York River / Richmond & Danville Rail Road." People stand in front of the building alongside horses, wagons, and barrels. A sign that runs underneath the roof lists a number of southern cities. Two steamships are located alongside the pier at rear. Piedmont Air-Line Railway was part of the Southern Railway, and steamers from this location connected with railroads in Virginia.
