Lackawanna Railroad: Bloomsburg Branch Bridge

The Lackawanna Railroad's Bloomsburg Branch bridge over the Susquehanna. These views are from the West Pittston side of the bridge. Unlike the Lehigh Valley bridge upstream from here, this bridge is in much better shape.

Nay Aug Park Car Show

Last Sunday's Villa Capri car show at Nay Aug Park was a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House. It wasn't as big as the June show, but still had some nice autos.

Abandoned Brewery

An abandoned brewery on Route 92 in Exeter. Originally the building was occupied by the Forest Castle Brewery in 1873. Later Forest Castle became H.R. Hughes & Co. Brewery, and eventually the Hughes & Glennon Brewery around 1887. I'm unsure of how long the building was used as a brewery. The cinder block additions, which I didn't examine too closely, look like they were added in the 1960's. The building clearly has been vacant for some time, having lost it's upper floor(s) over the years, only a corner of the original building remains. I didn't stay in here too long, the ceiling is brick, and part of it has collapsed.
