The white buildins is the Arena Gardens skatery and behind it is the Shamokin drive-in. The long straight road is now Route 61, the road that goes to the right, goes to Coal Run. And the road to the left goes out towards Excelsior. Where Arena Gardens was is now a grass lot.

This is a picture of the front of Arena Gardens. This intersection was called the Lancaster switch.

Now this one is kinda blurry, but up in the right hand corner is Brady, on the lower left is Boydtown, and right around the middle somewhere (it's hard to make out on this picture) is Palmer's Diner and hotel.
