ogenberger Slides to be shown at September meeting
Edward
and Marguerite Vogenberger
were fixtures of Langhorne Borough tending their farm on
North Green Street where they grew fruits and vegetables and raised chickens. When not busy on
the farm, they traveled extensively taking photographs of their trips and amassing a collection of
some 5000 slides on the edges of which they wrote detailed notes. Following their tragic murder
on March 14, 1976, their collection of slides was donated to HLA.
On Monday, September 24 at 7:30 pm
, HLA will present some of these slides at our general
meeting. They will include slides taken around the farm, slides of the many covered bridges they
visited and pictures of homes and buildings around Langhorne as they appeared over 70 years ago
(see page 4 for some samples of photographs from the collection).
These meetings are
open to the public
and will be
held at HLA’s headquarters in the Anna
Mary Williamson Library, 160 W. Maple Ave., Langhorne
