2: Martin Villa


1965: Martin Villa
Alexander J. Elion, June 30 1965

Just ahead The tracks cross Willow Avenue on a curve just south of the Castle Shannon Municipal Building. During the 70's, the stop ahead of the crossing was called Martin Villa, the name of the apartments visible to the right. I don't know if they were called Martin Villa in either 1965 or 2005.

The 2005 shot shows that the apartment building has had an extension built on the nearer end. Although concealed by the fence in the present-day photo, the house on the right appears to be well-maintained but otherwise completely unchanged! The building on Willow Avenue left of the tracks has new businesses but appears largely unchanged as well.
