Tacony: Era of William H. Gatzmer and the Philadelphia & Trenton Rail Road, is Charles A. McCloskey's groundbreaking chronicle of pre-Disston Tacony, concentrating on the period, 1847 to 1867; telling, for the first time, the story of Tacony Depot, a barely-known but historically significant chapter, not only in Philadelphia's history, but in early railroad history, as well.
"...the first definitive analysis of the neighborhood's earliest years...will alter your views on Tacony history and who our true pioneers were...shall serve as a tremendous reference resource for present and future historians." --Lou Iatarola, Historical Society of Tacony
