A morning walk in Yardley Borough – traces of history!

 

During my walk around Yardley this morning I photographed traces of history– buildings, signs, architectural details.  The story of the past is all around us.  But usually we walk by without noticing.  My interest in local history was fueled by walks like this around Yardley, Philadelphia and other towns in Bucks County.

Consider this a scavenger hunt.  How many sites can you identify?  And can you explain the significance.  Anyone with 100% , should apply to teach my local history class at HGP.  On second thought if your interested in local history, apply for the position.  Remembrance of things past — we shouldn’t forget.
