Journey Along the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad:
Pictorial History of Pocono Mountain Boarding Homes, Hotels, Inns & Resorts from the Delaware Water Gap to Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania
by Alan Sweeney

Postcard images capture the transformation of the Pocono Mountains from secluded wilderness to vacation destination. With the arrival of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad, numerous stations throughout the Pocono regions served those temporarily fleeing the confines of city life. A multitude of boarding homes, hotels, inns and resorts provided travelers with a wide variety of accommodations and activities. This work is a representation of the author's 10 year endeavor to collect postcards depicting the Pocono Mountains. The images illustrate how the area's tourism industry developed. Readers are destined to enjoy a journey through time while rediscovering treasured memories from a bygone era.

  1. TASK 1: An old car parked in front of a house!

    I like that kind of giveaways!

  2. Thank you for the giveaway! I love it when you have to work for them.

    It almost looked like a huge flower bed or a meeting of people on the front lawn of the house.

  3. The sign on the house looked like it said william something.

    I love your challenges!

  4. I loved the black car parked on the left - course there were plenty of trees. I tried to pause so I could look more but the screen just went black - odd.
