Yes-a-ree-Bob, that’s correct.

We are visiting both of the Susquehannas today.

Susq Who is We

“We” is you, Bogdan Yelcovich, Jim McFee and I.

However, Bogdan and Jim will remain silent – – – I hope.

So here we go.

Bogdan?  You had a question? Sure; I can answer that.

The city and the river; yes – – – we are visiting both the city of Susquehanna and the river named The Susquehanna.

First of all I should tell you how old the city is.

Susq How old is it Wally

It is so old that it was once called a depot; a railroad depot where the engines and cars were repaired. In fact you and I have discussed this before; twice.

Once when we discussed Harmony and the other time when we looked at the Starucca Viaduct.

Susq Not another RR story

No more railroad stories – – – well not today anyway. I just wanted to put you in the correct geographical and time perspectives. You know – – – that “time, space, continuum thing.”

But if you wish you can see the old rail yard between the city and the river.

And all that activity drew in several businesses.

A great building was built where the Railroad Engines could be worked on.

Susq Cmon no mor RR Stories

OK, OK.  Sorry. I just thought it was a great rendering and of much interest. Holy cow, you interrupt more than Bogdan and Jim.

Moving along with the story;

It was not all hustle and bustle. The river was a great place to spend a quiet day.

And to fish for shad – – – until they built several dams that kept the shad from running upstream.

Susq Icy River

There was a “Binghamton Shad Club” on the Susquehanna River way up in New York.

Up and down the valley were coal mines.

There was even a hat company – – – but it relocated to New York City.
