Lehigh Valley Railroad
Lehigh Valley System
The Lehigh Valley Railroad was one of several “Anthracite Roads” that operated in Northeastern Pennsylvania. While it made a great deal of money moving coal to market, this chromolithograph promotes the Pocono Mountain resorts served by the company. Note that the only trains shown are for passengers, and the scenery is lush and green. The line also makes a point of showing several tourist destinations like Niagara Falls and the Glen Summit Hotel.
