Midway between New York City and Philadelphia, we’ve long called Hopewell and Princeton home; so this page features some vintage postcards from our collection (with nod to Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town”, first performed at Princeton’s McCarter Theatre on January 22, 1938.)
The red brick building in our masthead? That would be the Philadelphia & Reading Train Station in Hopewell, New Jersey. Built in 1876, it has been on the state and federal registers of historic places since 1984. Still an active freight line; passenger service ceased in 1982; today the station is used as a community center.
A note for collectors: While we much appreciate the charm of well-worn ephemera, we instead decided to show these postcards as closer-to-new; we’ve done photo-restoration to most of these images, also taking a measure of artistic license with some.
