New Hopewell Boro Postcards

We have added over 70 historic postcards to the Image Archives, kindly contributed by Bill Frenchu from his extensive collection.

The cards are primarily of Hopewell Borough, with a variety of new images from around town, including this lovely pair of  The Hopewell House (“Your Home Away From Home”) and its “Modern Bar” (“phone Hopewell 186”).

Other fascinating new views include the drugstore at Broad and Greenwood, the Presbyterian Church, St. Alphonsus R. C. Church, the spooky driveway entrance to Ralston Heights (the Castle), the Hopewell Valley Golf Club, and Christmas cards from St. Michaels’s Orphanage.

And thanks to Jack Koeppel for thinking ahead to scan these at the HVHS before Bill moved away from town.
