Nowhere in Pennsylvania is there a sychronicity between geography and history as there is in Carbon County. Intersected by the majestic Lehigh River in the picturesque Pocono Mountains, this is a county built on the discovery of anthracite coal, the fortitude of early settlers, and the boundless imaginations of men like Josiah White, Erskine Hazard, and Asa Packer. For over a century, Carbon County's breathtaking scenery, stunning Victorian architecture, and natural landmarks, such as Hitcheltooth Cliffs and Glen Onoko Falls, have attracted travelers. Whether riding on the hair-raising Switchback Railroad or staying at the American Hotel (now the Inn at Jim Thorpe), travelers loved postcards, many of which are featured in this book. Compiled from some of the finest collections of vintage postcards in the state, Carbon County is a visual treasure documenting the haunting beauty and idiosyncrasies of the area.
