That's what the Pennsylvania Railroad was familiarly called when Susan was a young lass in Philadelphia. This railroad bridge, photographed on the way to the District of Columbia Good Will Store last weekend is a relic of an earlier age, as there has been no entity called the Pennsylvania Railroad since 1968. A bit of financial history: This corporation still holds the record for the longest continuous dividend history, as it paid out annual dividends to shareholders for more than 100 consecutive years.
