Around Pottstown travels back to Pottstown's golden era. Since its founding in 1752, Pottstown has had a catalytic effect on the surrounding area with its industrial and commercial growth during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The horse and wagon gave way to new transportation methods, such as canal boats, railroads, and bridges, which afforded connections to the world market. Most importantly, this collection of vintage postcards shows Pottstown's citizens through the places where they shopped, went to school, worshiped, and celebrated life.
