“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”
~ Dr. Seuss
(Theodore Seuss Geisel)
The June 6, 2018 edition of the Northern Berks Merchandiser remains tucked under a home’s mailbox at the end of that month on a beautiful summer afternoon in Hamburg, Pennsylvania in this high contrast monochrome capture.
The newspaper is published by The Windsor Press of Hamburg and has been family owned and independent since 1958.
Hamburg, Pennsylvania, officially founded in 1787, was named after Hamburg, Germany.

“I love the nostalgic myself. I hope we never lose some of the things of the past.”
~ Walt Disney
I just love this sign on Manassas Guth Covered Bridge on an early April afternoon, depicting the bridge’s history in a painterly way.
The sign reads: “Lehigh Valley Covered Bridge, Guth’s Bridge, 1858, South Whitehall Township.”
Manassas Guth Covered Bridge crosses the Jordan Creek in South Whitehall Township, Pennsylvania. The historic wooden bridge was constructed in 1858 and rebuilt in 1882. It is a 108-foot long Burr Truss Bridge with vertical siding. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980, and is part of Covered Bridge Park.
