Title

A walk around Hamburg at the turn of the century : a slide presentation

Description

This is a video recreation of a slide presentation and narration by historian Elton R. Heath at the Hamburg Public Library in Hamburg, NY in 1978.  

Heath shares his memories and photographs of Hamburg residents, homes, streets, schools, and businesses circa 1902-1908, the time when he was a teenager.

A few years later, the Hamburg Historical Society published a written version of his talk that includes some information and images not provided in this video:

Heath, Elton R. Around old Hamburg village at the turn of the century: A guided tour. [Hamburg, N.Y.] : Hamburg Historical Society, [1982].
