Description

People have been writing "Greetings from Havre de Grace" since 1789, making this one of the oldest postal addresses in the country. The rich history of the "Harbor of Hope" on the Chesapeake Bay is documented in 265 postcard images, all from the early 20th century. The cards depict well-known images such as the famous "double-decker bridge," the Concord Point Lighthouse, and many waterfront and boating scenes for which the city is known. Over 800 homes and other structures make up a large portion of the city, listed on the National Register of Historic Districts. Architectural styles range from stately Federal, Greek Revival, Italianate, and Queen Anne styles to Victorian stone mansions. The book portrays buildings that have thankfully been preserved, others that have undergone drastic changes, and sadly, many that have succumbed to development. This book evokes happy memories for current and past residents and is an important architectural guide for historians and preservationists.
