Larry Lowenthal 146 pages softcover
Larry Lowenthal's classic 1981 book has been republished! This is the authoritative work on the mining region of northern New Jersey and the railroads that served them. Railroads in this region, like the Lackawanna and Central Railroad of New Jersey and their predecessors, greatly influenced the communities they served. Towns like Chester and Rockaway grew up around the railroads and mines that sustained them, and this book is a record of their combined history and eventual decline.
