Presented by Kendrick Bisset
The Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad that ran through Tobyhanna Township used a woman dressed in white to promote their passenger service in the early years of the 20th Century. Kendrick Bisset will present the origins of the advertising campaign and why it abruptly ended during The Great War, along with its rebirth prior to and after World War 2. Also included will be the birth and death of the train named The Phoebe Snow. Advertising cards and memorabilia will be on display.
Kendrick worked his entire career in the railroad and transit industry as a signal engineer, designing the systems to keep trains separated and moving safely through junctions and main line switches. Kendrick is a member of the Monroe County Historical Society, the Barrett Township Historical Association, and the East Stroudsburg Railroad Tower Society.
