Annotation

Greencastle-Antrim Revisited is the second installment of Bonnie A. and Kenneth B. Shockey's pictorial history of one of south-central Pennsylvania's most interesting communities. This edition covers events from the mid-19th century through the baby boomer decades of the 20th century. Industry, social life, and recreation in the late 19th and early 20th centuries are given special
attention. Among the images featured are many rare images from the Ziegler glass negative collection of the Allison-Antrim Museum and recently acquired photographs of the Irwin and Snively families. While these never before seen images document how the area looked in the later half of the 19th century, baby boomers will find great appeal in the photographs from the 1950s to the 1970s depicting “new” highway construction, businesses of the era, movie theaters, and local malt shops.
