That landmark image is among the many highlights of Historic Photos of Pennsylvania. Reproduced in vivid black and white, the nearly 200 photos in this volume showcase Pennsylvania?s natural beauty, industrial might, and advances in education and the arts. Farmlands and waterfalls, coal mines and steel mills, museums and universities—all contribute to the tapestry that is Pennsylvania?s landscape and history.
