Then and now: the Roadway arch on Lackawanna Drive dated 7/6/1910 shows the north end of the culvert that spans Lackawanna Drive. 

For reference, the future site of Lake Lackawanna, the McPeek and Heminover farms, would be located on the opposite side of the tunnel. At this point in time, the railroad fill has not yet reached this section of the Lackawanna Cutoff.

Then: Bird’s eye view of inlet and lake as seen from atop the DL&W Railroad fill ca. 1925-1926

Now:  Here’s a view of the inlet taken from a vantage point well above the railroad fill. There are quite a few more trees in the area today! Drone photo courtesy Alex Rubenstein, 2017.
