Past Meeting

Bart's snapshots from 1956

A Seven-Year-Old Remembers July 31, 1956

by Bart Van Valkenburgh

In this unique and entertaining presentation, Bart “connected the dots” between his childhood memories of a wide variety of subjects including: Autocar trucks and the devastating Autocar factory fire in Ardmore; the 5th Armored Division; the Paoli and Berwyn Fire Companies; a square-rigged ship named the Christian Radich; Hollywood; Cinerama; and the legendary Boyd movie theater in Center City Philadelphia.

This presentation was held at the Easttown Library & Information Center in Berwyn, PA starting at 2 pm.
