The Lambertville Historical Society will present “Lambertville Then and Now,” an all-outdoor, self-guided walking tour starting Labor Day weekend on Friday, Sept. 4.
Visitors can walk through the city and immerse themselves in Lambertville during its industrial heyday by viewing 20 poster-sized historic images in windows and in front of buildings where the original photos were taken.
The exhibit runs through Sunday, Nov. 8, and is presented in conjunction with the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce and the City of Lambertville.
The historic exterior images used date from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s, and include factory buildings, mansions, a theatre, stores, halls, and more. During that time, the ferry, the canal, the railroad and the Old York Road stagecoach route all contributed to the development and industrialization of Lambertville.
Visitors can use a QR-Code reader app on their mobile devices to learn more about the history of each site, or they can enter the web page address shown on the poster into their mobile web browser to do the same.
