This collection consists of digital scans of photographs of thirty-nine bridges on the Philadelphia Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad, which ran from Philadelphia to Harrisburg. The photographs were taken by or for the company as a form of property documentation. Most of the bridges have now been replaced by newer structures. The photographs show the Main Line suburbs before they were built up when the roads and streets were much more rudimentary.
The original photographs were digitized and donated to Hagley by Conrail employee Stephen J. Agostini.
