The Friends of the Delaware Canal will host an illustrated program, “Towpaths and Tales, an Aerial Photographic History of the Canals Along the Delaware River,” on Tuesday, May 8, at 7:30 PM in Riegelsville Borough Hall, 1st Floor Meeting Room, 615 Easton Road (Route 611), Riegelsville, PA 18077.

Mike McCann, a photographic historian, examined the properties along the Delaware River during his 21 years with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.   He reviewed aerial photographs taken from 1930 to the present under a stereo microscope, while in the process of determining whether land qualified for New Jersey’s Green Acres Program.  

Then and now programs are always fascinating, and this “pilot’s eye view” will be particularly so.  No lines, security checks or seat belts to fasten.  Just come and take in the sights!

The presentation is free and open to the public.   For more information about this program and other Friends’ activities, call 215-862-2021, e-mail friends@fodc.org or visit http://www.fodc.org
