[Pennsylvania Railroad at Bristol during a blizzard]


Dublin Core




Photo believed to have been taken opposite the present Harriman Station of Bristol near Taft and Barry Place. This storm was the worst since the blizzard of 1888. There were 127 poles blown across the tracks between Bristol and North Philadelphia. Telephone service was off, and river and trolley service stopped. The former Bristol Patent Leather Company would have been located behind the trains in the picture.


March 2, 1914
