Overview

In the eighteenth century, a ferry and mill marked the crossroads beginnings of Yardleyville in Makefield Township. New modes of transportation transformed the village, commerce and industry flourished, and the populationincreased substantially. Soon the people of Yardley yearnedfor their own government--their own town--and Yardley,Pennsylvania, was incorporated in 1895. Yardley is a unique, detailed look at the birth and growth of the borough. When Yardley Borough celebrated its centennial, donations and loans of photographs revealing Yardley's history were collected. This volume is compiled mostly from this locally assembled selection of images, and recounts Yardley'shistory with eloquence. These pages revisit the cigar stores, trolley tracks, ice cream shops, schools, the intersection of Main and Afton, and many other well-known sites throughout the borough. The face of the old toll collector, the festivitiesof the "Canal Days" and "Harvest Day" celebrations, and countless days at Lake Afton, the canal, or the river are all captured in this treasured account of Yardley's past.

    Yarldley: Images of America Series

    Nice collection of photographs from Yardley's past, mostly 20th century and late 19th. Profy is very knowledgeable on the subject and has assembled an interesting collection. Similar to others in the series, makes a good gift for anyone interested in local history/geography or just the general interest of seeing what present day locations such as the Continental Tavern, Yardley Inn, Main Street, etc. used to look like.
