This site is dedicated to creating and sharing a visual record that captures the distinctive character of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area and the Pocono Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. The neighboring cities of Scranton and Wilkes-Barre are often collectively referred to as EC/DC (as in Electric City/Diamond City). While historically known as the Electric City, Scranton is currently more famous for being home to a small but not insignificant branch of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.

Scranton Times-Tribune Building
The Scranton Times-Tribune Building
The Scranton Times-Tribune building has some interesting creative touches. This view of the back side of the building not only shows a trompe l'oeil, but the upper left corner is peeled away to provide a glimpse of what is going on inside the building. The lower left corner depicts a paper boy under the owl at the front entrance which is actually located on the other side of the building. The owl is a symbol for uncovering secrets as well as wisdom.
