Awesome - thanks for sharing. Some of the bridges and buildings they built back then blow me away.

I still want to know who goes on their honeymoon and is like "Today I'm going to ride a wagon towed by a goat, you're going to get on a jackass and we're going to get our picture taken"

The photo with the caption of Danville, PA is actually outside Sunbury, PA and the bridge in the background is still there and in use by the railroad. The foreground where the train is located is now Route 11 headed towards Danville right after the Rt. 11/15 split for anybody that has headed that way.

These are great. I have some photos from around 1902 that I happened upon last year while going through some archives from the Mystic Seaport that the G.W. Blunt White Library had archived. I was looking through old sailboat photos when I suddenly thought I saw a photo of the house I grew up in for 25 years. I read the description and found out that the boy in the photo was G.W. Blunt White, for whom the library was named, and who was the son of Lt. Cmdr. William Porter White (also in some of the pics), and lived in my house as a boy. Pretty cool! Sometimes you never know how seemingly random old photos can suddenly become very personal.
