This is another great photo taken by Neal Ranauro off of the roof of Johns Manville sometime in the 40’s. I love that he captured the Lehigh Valley steam engine pulling through the intersection that eventually became the Main Street underpass. Could you imagine what rush hour Manville would look like if the bridge never got put in? On the right you can see the old manville train station, which while they built the underpass, sat on stilts in the Chester House parking lot. Off in the distance there you can see the “Texaco” sign where cyburts eventually opened. I was going to use this photo to preface the “Opening of the Manville Underpass” post when I did it, but it’s just such a cool photo of life in the town… I figured I would let it stand alone.
