New from Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series is Ukrainians of the Delaware Valley. In over 200 vintage photographs, local author Alexander Lushnycky shares the history of area Ukrainians through photographs.
At the dawn of the 20th century, the industrializing world provided Ukrainians an opportunity to immigrate to America to lead free and honorable lives. Ukrainians of the Delaware Valley illustrates the Ukrainians’ ongoing saga, commencing with the late 19th century when they disembarked in the Delaware Valley and continuing to the present, as they gradually integrated into their American communities.
The Ukrainians’ common purpose was to preserve their unique eastern culture, cherished daily customs and elaborate traditions embalmed in the mysteries of their eastern religion in new surroundings.
Ukrainians of the Delaware Valley documents how each new generation of immigrants added to the kaleidoscope of Ukrainian communities in 17 of the boroughs of the Delaware Valley. Most of the images in this book have been donated from private collections of local residents.
