The Society's recent Digital Conversion Project provided its volunteer workers with the opportunity to read closely many interesting articles on local history from earlier issues. It was particularly evident to the reviewers that, over the almost seventy year time span (1937-2005) of the reviewed issues, great improvement had occurred in the available quality of reproduction of the graphic material content in the History Quarterly. This suggests that improved quality images might be added as identified supplements to the original articles.

This program featured newly discovered (some quite old) photos related to previous Quarterly topics such as the “Swedesford” of Swedesford Road, the varying face of the Great Valley transportation corridor, the border with Upper Merion at “County Line Road” , “EitherCoe ” and “Maple Station”. Surviving local examples of successful use of that difficult building material the “Easttown Boulder” were shown. Jim also provided a sound movie of the last PRR steam locomotive train run through Berwyn on the Main Line.
