This week’s Tour Through Time takes a look at then and now images of road construction near Newville.
The “then” photos is believed to be between 1910-1915.
After numerous attempts to figure out the exact location of the image, I believe it is west of Newville along Route 641.
The now image shows the progress over the years.
Tour Through Time will run Saturdays in the Sentinel as a joint project with the Cumberland County Historical Society. Sentinel photographers will work with staff at the historical society each week to offer a look at Carlisle and the surrounding area through the years.
Please contact the Cumberland County Historical Society 717-249-7610 with any information pertaining to these images. Please send future ideas or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
