Pennsylvania Profiles, Volume Fourteen
"It Started in Pennsylvania"
Incredible stories about the Keystone State from the syndicated illustrated feature Pennsylvania Profiles. You will be surprised at how many everyday things started in the Commonwealth and this books gives the amusing details on several: root beer; Planters Peanuts; toilet paper; nursing schools; professional baseball; iron bridges; the first labor strike; and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the first of its kind in the U.S. Amusing stories include the "Dragon Lady" of Pennsylvania and the odd-ball meanings of certain towns around the state, and so much more.
