PENNSBURG PA – A brown-bag lunch presentation Wednesday (Sept. 8, 2021) from noon to 1 p.m., being offered both in-person and virtually from the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center, 105 Seminary St., will explore “A Century of Change” in local landscapes, as reflected in photographs taken during between 1900 and 1910 as selected from the library’s archives.

The event is free to attend and open to the public. Advance registration is requested; register by calling 215-679-3103 or by sending an e-mail to Those attending the virtual program will receive its link by return e-mail.

During the program, presenter Allen Viehmeyer will show and discuss earliest photos of Twardocice (Harpersdorf) and other German-Silesian locations in the library collection.
