Journey Along: Pictorial History of Pocono Mountain Resorts
Publisher : Tribute Books
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 region 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.
