I never look forward toward the end of Summer but one small compensation is that the Historical Society of Frankford will be starting up regular monthly programs in September. This month features a video of the former curator Howard Barnes. I remember Mr. Barnes from when he lived on Penn Street. In fact I have a copy of his book that he autographed on the shelf here with me. Of all of his talents, he was first and foremost a story teller. Stop by on September 13th and have a look. Below is the lineup of the programs through December. There is a little bit of everything so you are bound to find something interesting.
