At the back of Maplewood Cemetery one can look down onto the former O&W right-of-way. At this time of year it's more like a jungle. Recently volunteers have been cleaning up this cemetery, which is Carbondale's oldest.

Looking the other way, one sees a bridge pier from the New York Ontario & Western Scranton Division through Carbondale. This was once part of Bridge No. 11. The D&H tracks are in the foreground.

A view of Gravity Park in Carbondale. This is the monument to the D&H Gravity RR which was dedicated in 1928 on the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Delaware & Hudson gravity road to Honesdale, and the opening of the D&H canal to Kingston NY. The D&H was the first million dollar corporation in the United States. The park has recently been cleaned up with new walkways and fencing.
Nay Aug Falls, about 11:15 yesterday morning. On Saturday afternoon, the Scranton Fire Department had to rescue a girl that jumped into the gorge at this location. That was at least the third time this summer that some fool had to get pulled from the water down here.

Another Downtown Scranton landmark is coming down soon. This building on the corner of Wyoming and Linden Streets will soon be demolished to make way for a new six story apartment building. Markowitz has moved down the street to the Forum at 222 Linden Street. The Federal Building can be seen in the background, on the left.

A view of the former Globe Theatre at 902-904 Pittston Avenue. I don't know much about the years this was in operation, but according to some various Film Daily Yearbooks, it had about 650 seats and was once operated by the Paramount-Publix chain.
