Photo presentation features Delaware Canal now and then

Join the Friends of the Delaware Canal for “Worth a Thousand Words – The Delaware Canal in Photos, Old and New.”

The presentation will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 30, in the Feinstone Conference Center at the David Library of the American Revolution, 1201 River Road, Washington Crossing.

Susan Taylor, the executive director of the Friends, has put together a presentation that features both the canal in the past and its many virtues today. All of the photos are ones she wished everyone could see.

There will be old postcard views, some then-and-now images to compare and contrast, and many of photographer Carole Mebus’ scenic vistas and shots of nature at its best.

The canal from Bristol Borough to the Forks of the Delaware in Easton will be on display. Taylor will also include some of her favorites and “people’s choices,” such as the Bald Eagle and Great Blue Heron encounter.

There is no charge for admission. Donations will be accepted and go toward canal improvement efforts.
