At the busy Severna Park corner of B & A Blvd. and Jones Station Road, there is a steadfast reminder of a time gone by when we were not always, always in a hurry. The Browse and Buy Shoppe. I like to imagine for a nano second as I pass the rigidly rectangular, brick building, the calm and quiet travelers crossing there perhaps by foot or in the simple automobiles of an earlier 20th century.
Other than the train arrivals and departures, perhaps the dirt or gravel roads provided the most noise. But in any case, everything moved SLOWLY in comparison to today's frenzy. How nice. With a closer look, I notice that on the sign, Anne Arundel is spelled with two "r's".
I googled Anne Arrundel with two "r's" and didn't get any easy information. When did Anne lose her second "R" and why? Are there two different branches of the family? Can anyone fill me in on the history and mystery of the missing "R"?
