Richmond’s Main Street Station has survived more than 100 years of time, floodwaters brewed up by hurricanes and tropical storms, and an evolving infrastructure that’s hidden the National Historic Landmark among a veritable can of concrete worms.
But it has endured. Here Caitlin from our Customer Care Team draws up a snapshot in time, a picture of the station and its clocktower circa 1971. She’s aided by a pair of sleek Super5 products: a Calligraphy fountain pen in Black/Grey and Frankfurt ink. With a narrow 0.5mm calligraphy nib, the pen is built for bold sketching
Today, Main Street Station sits among interstates, Amtrak lines and winding sidewalks. So many choices, so many directions. When there is a fork in the road, some would suggest picking it up. Robert Frost famously spoke of taking the one less traveled. Whatever you choose, be sure to bring your fountain pen, ink and notebook for sketching. Or for drawing a map to find your way home.
