Harold Amster was a Spring City resident who was well-known for his photography skills. In December, 2018, Ruth Marquette, Amster's daughter, donated a box of 3"x4" black and white negatives to the museum. Spanning a 40-year period from 1940-1980, the hundreds of negatives capture buildings, family photos, floods, fires, snowstorms, auto accidents, and much more. Glenn Holcombe, Royersford photographer, digitized the negatives and the quality and clarity are incredible. This donation is an absolute treasure trove for the society and the Spring-Ford community.
.As the negatives were processed, it was obvious that the images that resulted should be used to create a program for the society. That program will be given on Wednesday, November 13 at 7:30 PM. The presentation was created by President Emeritus, William Brunner. Bill selected a sampling of the photographs for the program which will be presented by board member and program director, Dave Willauer. All Spring-Ford Historical Society programs are free and open to the public and are held at the Royersford VFW, 730 S. Fourth Avenue, Royersford. Please join us for an evening to remember as you step back in time with Harold Amster's World of Photography. For more information click here.
