Part of the Images of America series of books, this book describes the history of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. The book is mostly a large collection of photos (usually two per page) with a paragraph of text under each. This makes for easy reading. Unfortunately not much is mentioned of the railroads in Canonsburg.
