History Still There
Author: MacBeau

The depot in this view looking down Susquehanna Street in Mauch Chunk, PA from August 1940 still stands, but a little time with Google Maps Street View reveals eighty years of change. Interestingly enough, a train still can be seen in front of the depot. Credit Jack Delano and the FSA for this timeless classic.  

Be of good cheer,

What an excellent photograph!

Here's a link to the Google Streetsview from approximately the same location.  Lots of changes, but some things remain.

Buildings to far left are either gone or redeveloped, fortunately the RR infrastructure remains.
Occasionally you can find operating steam, F-units, or RDCs at the x-CNJ depot.
Most weekends in spring,summer, fall finds Jim Thorpe overun with tourists.
