[Pennsylvania Railroad at Bristol during a blizzard]


Dublin Core




From Harold & Carol Mitchener: "This was probably the blizzard on March 14, 1914. Transportation was paralyzed. Eighty mile-per-hour winds caused havoc. There were 127 poles blown across the tracks between Bristol and North Philadelphia. Telephone service was off, and river and trolley service stopped. Note the stalled train."


March 12, 1914
