This book spends almost half on the period before WWI, which means there is lots of historical information about how the PRR was formed. There are lots of photos of steam engines, a disproportionate number of photos of the GG1, and many photos of Conrail engines. There are also a number of photos of PRR-significant structures and railroad advertising signs.
