View of Honesdale, Wayne County, P.A., 1890 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer.

This panoramic print of Honesdale, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer in 1890. Honesdale was founded in 1826 and named after Philip Hone, president of the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company. The company transported anthracite coal from the Pennsylvania coal regions by way of a gravity rail system to the canal at Honesdale and on to New York. In 1829, the D. & H. Canal Co. began using the British made Stourbridge Lion locomotive on the route from the mines of Carbondale to Honesdale where the valuable ore was transferred to barges to be shipped to Kingston and then down the Hudson River to New York City. Honesdale prospered as a transportation hub during this era.

The map from 1890 includes Honesdale’s labeled streets, buildings, bridges and railroad lines.
