This pictorial history continues the story of the Mahanoy area, a community located at the heart of the Pennsylvania anthracite mining region. Mahanoy Area Revisited encompasses the years 1913–1963. These vintage photographs depict the history, culture, faith, tragedies, industry, beauty, and strength of this region as well as its people, which includes an Oscar winner, Victor Schertzinger, as well as the composer of the No. 1 hit "Once in Awhile," Michael (Slowitzky) Edwards, and the inventor of cable television, John (Walsonavich) Walson. The images of the Victoria Theater ("the Vic"), schools, parks, churches, businesses, collieries, and citizens present a rich and complex tapestry of a close-knit, vibrant community that includes Mahanoy City and surrounding villages or "patches" such as New Boston, Delano, St. Nicholas, and Barnesville.
