The Carsonia Park Beer Garden was constructed by Fred H. Ludwig of Reading Blvd., Wyomissing, who had a major involvement in the ownership and operation of Carsonia, probably because of the great amount of lumber needed in its maintenance. Ludwig was president of Merritt’s LUMBER yard. The building still stands today, operating as Anthony’s Restaurant at the corner of Navella and Penndale Avenues in Pennside. — photograph from the Passing Scene, Vol. 2
