Deer Lake Drive-in

 After seeing Carl Weese’s beautiful shot of the Pike Drive-in, I went digging for some of my drive-in photographs. This is from Deer Lake PA, an area where I photographed extensively for my Anthracite Region essay. I find this area of Pennsylvania to be fascinating, it preserves something that has been lost in many areas. It is a coal mining region, so until recently the economy in these areas has been flat, with high enemployment. Not much development – and that is what interests me. It’s like traveling in a  time warp when in  the area, the towns and patches (small clusters of houses),  haven’t changed much in 50 years.  The area preserves a unique architecture and I will be posting on that soon.
