It would be easy to view the history of Lower Merion during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as the tale of wealthy families and their expensive mansions. But that would be far from the whole story.

Even today, three decades after the railroad merged with a rival, the Pennsylvania’s legacy continues to shape life in the township. The Pennsylvania Railroad began its long association with the Main Line when it purchased the Philadelphia & Columbia Railroad from the state in 1857.

Great condition!

Very interesting book. Even tho' I grew up on the Main Line, there are a lot of facts that I didn't know. Well worth buying.

Got to leaf through this book at my Dad's dentist's office today and love it!! Found out so many interesting facts and saw so many fascinating pictures about where I grew up. It was wonderful seeing a photo of my old elementary school, Bala School; so many find memories there. I had been heartbroken when I came home one college break in the 70's and saw it had been torn down. This book is great for anyone who grew up in Lower Merion and want to learn some history about it.

I have been waiting for years for someone to do a photo-history of this remarkable, historic area outside Philadelphia. This is an excellent overview of Lower Merion County (which takes in much, though not all, of the Main Line). Wonderful photos, interesting text.
The only complaints I have are minor--some of the buildings shown should be located better as far as an address or a map. And the title is a bit misleading, as some might think it's only about the TOWN of Lower Merion.
But I heartily congratulate the authors and the members of the Lower Merion Historical Society on a job well done and a long-overdue book! Great read for natives and historians alike.
