Meet the Author


Marci Lynn McGuinness, history author and lecturer, has gathered over 200 images to create the first B&O history of this kind. Many of the photographs are from a rare collection photographed by Henry Jackson in 1891. Local contributors have allowed their family heirlooms to complete this pictorial history of a time of wealth and progress in southwest Pennsylvania. This one-of-a-kind title is sure to please both residents of the areas covered and any railroad enthusiast.
