Image description: Volume 14 [formerly Volume 125]:
The date range of this volume is approximately 1935 to 1949. As is the case with Volume 5 [formerly Volume 97] this contains no images of trains but rather travel-related postcards and other ephemera. Some of the ephemera appear to be from trips Foreman took himself while others were sent to him by PTC friends and colleagues. There are illustrated scenes of Pennsylvania including views of Huntingdon, Gettysburg, Lebanon, and State College plus photographs of Lycoming County from the July 1935 issue of National Geographic; contemporary and historic photographs of Philadelphia produced as part of a promotional campaign by Singer and Wheeler & Wilson Sewing Machines; illustrations of New Jersey including Atlantic City, Ocean City, and Wildwood; illustrations of New York City including Grand Central Terminal; and assorted postcards from Miami, New Hampshire, Maine, and other locations. Finally, Foreman again mentions a “biography of George Albright Foreman #70.”

Places listed:
Pittsburgh; Carpenters' Hall; Christ Church; Independence Hall; Municipal Stadium; Betsy Ross House; Great Egg Harbor; Medford Springs; Wildwood, NJ; Grand Central Terminal; Atlantic City; Lycoming County; Old Orchard Beach.
