Hilltown Township Through Postcards

In a thoroughly illustrated Power Point presentation, local historian and author Aaron Heckler begins with the background societal history and development of the picture postcard in America, beginning in the late 1800s. Explanation is given for the various types and styles of postcards produced and what sorts of images they contained. The program then explains how one township in particular, Hilltown, Bucks County, utilized the medium of the picture postcard in various ways. The presentation concludes with numerous then and now comparisons between old time postcards and modern-day photographs of sites in Hilltown Township and Silverdale.
