From lifelong serious railroad artifact collection: Original mid 1870's Thomas Viaduct, Relay Maryland Viaduct Hotel Railroad Depot photograph in lovely original period frame for sale. Believe this one of a kind artifact stood in the Relay Depot. Formal pose shows steam engine 625 leading train in front of the Viaduct Hotel. The famed Race of the Tom Thumb and Samuel Morse's telegraph workship was here. "In 1873 the B&O Railroad replaced the old Relay House with a new and much larger Gothic-Victorian style combination hotel and train station called The Viaduct Hotel. It was designed by the B&O Railroad's house architect E. Francis Baldwin and built at a cost of approximately $50,000.

The Viaduct Hotel was constructed of the same local Patapsco granite that was used in the Thomas Viaduct and was trimmed with Victorian style decorative gingerbread woodwork around the windows, eaves, gables, and porches. There were also three horizontal "beads" of red Seneca Sandstone (a.k.a. Brownstone) that trimmed the granite walls of the building's hotel side and all of the windows were trimmed at their tops with it. The building's roof was constructed using multicolored slate in decorative patterns and was topped-off with ornate cast iron crestings." - http://thomas-viaduct-relay-maryland.bl ... _2423.html
