SoonMoreIn the eighteenth century, a ferry and mill marked the crossroads beginnings of Yardleyville in Makefield Township. New modes of transportation transformed the village, commerce and industry flourished, and the populationincreased substantially.

Soon the people of Yardley yearnedfor their own government--their own town--and Yardley,Pennsylvania, was incorporated in 1895. Yardley is a unique, detailed look at the birth and growth of the borough. When Yardley Borough celebrated its centennial, donations and loans of photographs revealing Yardleys history were collected. This volume is compiled mostly from this locally assembled selection of images, and recounts Yardleyshistory with eloquence. These pages revisit the cigar stores, trolley tracks, ice cream shops, schools, the intersection of Main and Afton, and many other well-known sites throughout the borough.

The face of the old toll collector, the festivitiesof the Canal Days and Harvest Day celebrations, and countless days at Lake Afton, the canal, or the river are all captured in this treasured account of Yardleys past.
