Laurel Line, Yesterday and Today

May 1941 view of the Laurel Line

The top photo, from our 1998 calendar shows a May 1941 view of the Laurel Line downtown Wilkes-Barre. Ed Miller Photo.

The bottom picture show the 2003 King's College Book Store on the left. It was a bike shop before being sold to the College. The buildings on the right are part of King's College campus. Parking lots have replace the Laurel Line Right of Way in this view

As a historical note, in 2008 the old book store has been razed, as now the King's and Wilkes Joint book store is now in the former Woolworth's store. It is a Barnes and Noble store and is part of a downtown revitalization program.
