Welcome to the Library of the Amateur Historian

In this library, it is stocked with books that relate to the Wissahickon Valley Region. They provide old photographs of places that were significant in the area as well as biographical and autobiographical perspectives of residents who lived in the area. Other books contain guides to understand the architectural styles used in the United States from the early colonial period to the postmodern era.

It was the Images of America Postcard series that really sparked my inspiration to preserve the history of local communities. The postcards from the Images of America books were featured in some of my posts that were photoshopped into the present day.
