Talky Tuesday #47

Last week’s “WW #75” is a view of a mixed freight  eastbound at Laquin, PA. By this late date (ca. 1942), the town is nearly abandoned. To the left are the foundations of either the Laquin store, or the S&NY depot. In the right distance is the old Laquin schoolhouse. In its heyday, Laquin was home to 2000 people, several industries including the Barclay Wood Chemical plant, two churches, a hotel, many homes, and a ballfield.

Compare with this view from earlier in the 20th century from nearly the same location:


And this view of the S&NY depot:
