History of Collingdale Borough Told Through Photographs

Local author Elizabeth MacGuire pens new book on this Pennsylvania community.

 
PRLog - Oct. 29, 2012 - The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Collingdale Borough from local author Elizabeth MacGuire. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.

Collingdale, a family-friendly community, is home to Collingdale Park, one of the biggest parks in Delaware County, and Collingdale Community Center, a venue for a wide variety of community events. Collingdale’s long history of community service and patriotism is reflected in the All Wars Memorial and in its citizens, who provide many services for those in need.

The borough can boast of its championship sports teams that still produce world-class athletes, such as Carson Thompson, who pitched a no-hitter exhibition ball game in the 1936 Olympic Games. Collingdale is also the home to the Eden Cemetery, the oldest African American–owned cemetery in the United States, and is the birthplace of John Bartram, America’s first botanist.

The images in Collingdale Borough represent the town from its incorporation in 1891 to the present and are a reflection of what makes the borough unique.
