As some of you know I have been working to document what survives of the PRR and its surrounding landscape in the Eastern Region. This project took great inspiration from the photographic work of William H Rau who was commissioned by the Pennsy in the 1890s to illustrate the railroad and it's destinations. This article expands upon my influence from Rau and features a few of his wonderful images. Enjoy! Mike
