Digital Archives of Images of the Hopewell Valley region, starting with photos and postcards of buildings and streets in Hopewell Borough, Pennington, and Titusville.
Some images are scanned / photographed from historic books and postcards (around 1900), and therefore out of copyright in the U.S. Other images were kindly contributed by local authors and photographers, and local history enthusiasts and postcard collectors. See Acknowledgements for contributors.
Thanks also to the Washington Crossing Card Collectors Club (WC4), for bringing together postcard collectors in the Delaware Valley region of eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The Image Archives currently are hosted on Google Drive. You can browse by image or name, and view and download the images.
The files are named by street address and year for convenient searching and sorting. This makes it easy to compare images along the same street, at the same address in different years, or from different sources. See the Images Gallery (PDF) for more information on the file naming convention.
