To Bahadir,

Yours is truly a great idea (if only I were able to do so right now). The problem is that I currently live hundreds of miles from the Pocono Mountains. During the past three years, I've bought enough vintage Pocono area postcards on eBay that I'm now fairly able to piece together where many ofthese vacation resorts of yesteryear (many of which have since been torn down) were once located. Over 40 years ago, I worked two summers at a Pocono resort which was recently demolished. During those long ago summers (as well as four to five visits to the area since then), I saw many parts of the Poconos- but not as much or as thoroughly as I now would like. The next time I travel to Pennsylvania, I'll have to devote a full week to do just what you suggest, take photos of numerous resort sites throughout the Pocono Mountains.

In addition to vintage postcards, I've also bought a number of vintage geological maps of the area, helping me to plot where such and such a resort was (or still is) located.

Thank you for your suggestion. It is truly a fine idea!

Huckleberry

The type of rail travel which brought vacationers to the Pocono Mountains in the late 1800s - early 1900s.
