" Postcards From The Lincoln Highway "

Presented by Barry Elliott

Barry, is a retired software engineer for Northrop Grumman Corp. where he worked with various mapping applications including Google Earth. His interest in local history and his love to travel allows him to combine multiple interest and skills with this project. Barry is originally from Greencastle and now lives in Chambersburg.
This program features more than 350 vintage post-cards from nearly 300 sites along the 200 miles of the Lincoln Highway from eastern Adams County to western Westmoreland County. Scenes from many locations along the route show, past and present, side-by-side, comparison of many landmarks. In many cases, historical aerial photos and satellite images are used to identify buildings and features that, in many cases, have disappeared from the landscape. 

As always, the program and the goodies are free.
