View of Telford, Montgomery and Bucks Counties, P.A., 1894 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer.

This aero-view print of Telford and West Telford, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer in 1894. Telford was settled by Europeans in the early 1700's. The community maintained as an agricultural trading town in its early years.

When the North Pennsylvania branch of the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad was built through Telford (then called County Line), the trading of agricultural produce increased. The railroad named their new station after civil engineer Thomas Telford and the town adopted the name.

Telford straddles the border of Montgomery and Bucks counties. Telford was incorporated as a borough of Bucks County in 1886 and West Telford was incorporated as a borough of Montgomery County in 1897.

West Telford possessed a shirt factory and a clothing factory and maintained two cigar manufactories during this era. The towns later merged into one.
