Two additions to the Wynning History collection show Pottsville in the early 20th century

In recent months, we’ve been adding photographs, images, postcards, and illustrations of Pennsylvania’s anthracite coal fields to our collection here at Wynning History.

This week, we’ve got added two postcard views of the seat of Schuylkill County. The images show Pottsville in the early 20th century. They are available for download in high resolution by clicking on the images below.
