D&L volunteer and Island Park historian Bob Pasquini holds ribbons that were given to visitors to the park as he stands near on an actual park bench once used in the park on June 8, 2017 in Easton, Pa.  Easton Island Park, one of several amusement parks started by local trolley companies to boost weekend fares, was uniquely situated on a 100-acre island in the middle of the Lehigh River, accessible via a trestle built for the trolley. Researchers hope a new exhibit at the National Canal Museum might elicit more information and memorabilia.   (April Bartholomew/The Morning Call via AP)
