About the Author

The late Philip J. Hoffman of Johnstown, Pennsylvania, was born in Albany, NY in 1891. A registered professional engineer, Phil participated in several engineering projects along the old Allegheny Portage Railroad tunnel and thus acquired an interest in the railroad. This activity led to the hundreds of sketches he made after retirement of "life as it was" on the Pennsylvania canal system of the mid-1800's.

Although this book includes a lot of pictures, there's not enough written material. Also, I was looking for a book to show/tell me more details, like where the canal ran.

Have visited Bow Ridge many times, which once was the site of the only tunnel that exited via an aqueduct. Lots of visible remains of the old canal bed. Pretty on it's own merit, otherwise. Was interesting learning of Pennsylvania's struggle to supple the western end of their own state while competing against the Erie canal. Some men with big ideas and crazy plans.....
