 HJ "Hager" tower, Hagerstown MD December 1956.
This is the same tower on the Sanborn maps.  It was probably the last
surviving structure in Hagerstown built by the Cumberland Valley RR.  Train
in photo is northbound Reading operating on PRR (trackage rights) from
Cumbo yard on the B&O near Martinsburg, WV.  Western Maryland shops in
background, now completely gone.  Track on right of the tower is the PRR
main to Harrisburg, PA
