Here's a collection of photos from the RTD archive to mark the anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe's death.
Poe was born in Boston and spent most of his childhood in Richmond. He's renowned for macabre works such as “The Raven,” “The Fall of the House of Usher” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.”
On Oct. 3, 1849, Poe was found semiconscious on a Baltimore street. He died four days later at age 40.
