I put out an APB yesterday for things in Scranton that are “staples” of the area. I have an idea for a design, and want to represent Scranton with iconography of its history and culture. I started with a decent list, but am really interested in what others associate with Scranton (other than the Office).
Below is a running list of ideas and things—to be updated for sure.
History & Heritage
- Coal, mines, mining (via @NEPA_MOM)
- Electricity, Electric City sign
- Steamtown, trolleys, trains, railroads (via @NEPA_MOM)
- Baconville (former name of Jermyn, via @cdevroe)
- La Festa Italiana
- St. Patrick’s Day Parade
- Iron Furnaces
- SWB Red Barons
- Lace factory
- Cultural Center
Brands / Miscellany
- The Globe
- Crystal Club Soda
- Top Dog
Know of any more that need to be on this list? Send me a tweet – @kyleruane. The more obscure the better.
