Lansdale Historical Society

American Olean Tile
The Rise and Fall of an Industry Giant


This program will be a follow-up to the Society's popular presentation of our last year's program on May 8, 2007, which featured more than 200 photo images that focused on changes to the North Penn area landscape during the past century.  This year's program, narrated by Steve Moyer and Dick shearer , will include dozens of new additions to the Society's extensive photo collection.  The presentation will feature a wide array of then-and-now images photographed years apart from the same angle.  Some show drastic changes that have taken place over the years; others draw attention to sights and scenes that have survived the test of time.
