The Art Work of Delaware County published in 1897 was published in 9 parts for subscribers. Each Volume contained about 8 pictures, along with some text. The pictures were printed on high quality paper for the time and are just beautiful for being a hundred and ten years old. The entire set has been added to the site. Several readers inquired about the text which is missing. The text does not talk about the pictures, but only Delaware County in general. Why one should live there, the roads, trolleys, goverment etc.
