The Changing Face of Perkinsville


In the spring of 1958 Ed Weber and Tom Taber, III set out to document the DL&W depots west of Scranton prior to the merger with the Erie.  Ed brought the topo maps and Tom drove.  Here is Ed's shot of Perkinsville taken May 18, 1958.  Ed points out that the station signs were already removed as of this date, probably because the DL&W was no longer using the station. 

Contrast Gary LaPointe's shot taken four decades later.

In Jon Rothenmeyer's shot you can still see through the trees the remains of the factory that is clearly visible in the background of Ed Weber's 1958 shot.
