Join us as we view a presentation of early postcard views along the Susquehanna River from Columbia to York Haven. The talk will include Columbia and the Pennsylvania Railroad, Chickies Rock and the park that operated at Chickies and Marietta and views of the iron furnaces that once operated between Columbia and Marietta. We will also see the Accomac and Wildcat Falls hotels in York County and the ferry boats that went back and forth on the river at this summer vacation spot. The talk will end with Bainbridge and the York Haven hydroelectric plant.

The talk will be presented by Mark W. Arbogast, a retired PPL land manager who worked at the Holtwood and Brunner Island power plant projects. Mark is a local historian and also a postcard collector.
