by John C. Van Horne (ed) with Eileen Drelick (ed).
This oversize volume reproduces almost 100 of the remarkably detailed and texturally rich albumen photographs taken in the 1890s along the routes of the Pennsylvania Railroad by William H. Rau. The book includes striking views not just of railcars, tracks, and stations, but also of cities and towns, bridges, ferry boats, rivers, islands, canals, tunnels, piers, industrial sites, residences, hotels, and inns along the line, mostly in Pennsylvania, but with some views also of New York, New Jersey, and Maryland. It also includes essays by several noted scholars of the history of photography and of the railroad - John Stilgoe, Mary Panzer, and Kenneth Finkel - and should appeal to a wide audience.
