A postcard of N. Lansdowne Ave. looking north toward Garrett Rd. The exact location is unknown. This picture is from about 1910 when Lansdowne was still a "little country town".
Note: The article below is from the early 1920's, when trolley lines ruled eastern Delaware County and contributed to the 1920's building boom. Trolleys left 69th St. Terminal at that time and ran on Chester Pike, MacDade Blvd., Baltimore Pk. and West Chester Pike etc. including the routes today. The building boom lasted till 1929 and the depression. Please visit the trolley page on my website, delawarecountyhistory.com for more information.
