Old and New.... A pair old "old school "crossing bucks" protects the Green Mile Road crossing while in the background is the recently installed PTC building and Antenna. Also the old concrete mile marker gives way to father time as the more modern metal post and sign stands beside it.... at 21st. Bridge Road, MD - 01 January 2016
