Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Abington, Jenkintown, and Rockledge presents a portrait of the area that was originally the township of Abington, now a northern suburb of Philadelphia. The towns and villages that comprise the Abington area are captured in this timeless photographic history. From the days of the horse and buggy and the stagecoach, to the days of the grand estates, Abington, Jenkintown, and Rockledge portrays the area as it developed over the years. Pictured are many familiar sites, as well as those that helped define the area but no longer remain. From the long and distinguished histories of such venerable institutions as the Abington Friends' Meeting and Abington Presbyterian Church to the nationally known Willow Grove Park, Abington, Jenkintown, and Rockledge is a celebration of the area's legacy. Glimpses of the past are brought into focus with many rare and previously unpublished photographs. The fire companies, businesses, schools, people, and institutions that define Abington, Jenkintown, and Rockledge are included in this comprehensive photographic history.

About the Author

The Old York Road Historical Society was founded in 1936 to study and perpetuate the history and folklore of the communities along and adjacent to the Old York Road. The society's collections contain the largest group of historical material related to eastern Montgomery County, including some 40,000 photographic images. A few of these images were selected for this book and were supplemented by photographs from private collections. Several distinguished local historians contributed commentary for this unprecedented pictorial history.
