Since the early 1900s, postcards have offered views of all facets of life in Harford County. These keepsakes document natural beauties, such as Kilgore Falls, and natural disasters, such as the ice boulders that invaded Havre de Grace during the winter floods of the Susquehanna River. Church spires dominate a bird's eye view of Jarrettsville from 1910. The streets and stores of Aberdeen, Forest Hill, and Perryman come to life.
Postcards reveal the pride of homeowners in Darlington and Bel Air. This volume features the many hard-working citizens who helped the county prosper: farm hands, fishermen, smithies, North Harford slate quarry workers, and many more. World War I views of a soldier's life at Edgewood Arsenal salute the county's military. The stunning portraits in this collection highlight the people who made Harford County what it is today.
