Manuscript Group 325
PINE STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION
[ca. 1895-1925]
2 cubic feet

The Pine Street Presbyterian Church Photograph Collection consists of 176 glass lantern slides and new slides in a binder made from the originals. The use of the glass slides is restricted but the new slides may be consulted. Views include various Harrisburg buildings and streets, including the first Pennsylvania Capitol building before, during, and after the fire of 1897, as well as the reconstruction of the second capitol. There are also views of Bridgeport (Lemoyne); various bridges, canals, and railroads; the floods of 1899 and 1920; funeral trains of Presidents Lincoln and McKinley passing through the area; and King Albert of Belgium's visit to the state capitol. The slides were originally brought together for a 1920s nostalgia show of Harrisburg area buildings and landmarks and were donated to the State Archives in 1967 by the Pine Street Presbyterian Church..
