What defines the Main Line? That's what we set out to portray in The Main Line — A Photographic Journal. What we found is that it's a marvelous mix of elegance, grace, and charm. A suburb west of Philadelphia, it was first developed by the Pennsylvania Railroad during the Gilded Age and later epitomized in the classic movie The Philadelphia Story, modeled after Main Line socialite Hope Scott Montgomery. But most of all it's the magnificent mansions and churches; top-rated schools and colleges; beautiful gardens; horse farms and horse shows, hunt clubs, polo, dressage and carriage competitions; art centers and galleries; and sophisticated shops, charming old inns, and fine restaurants that set it apart.

The Main Line: A Photographic Journey makes a wonderful gift, an interesting conversation piece and the perfect addition to any coffee table.
