This Was Their Time

They were American families of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They settled in Bristol, Pennsylvania, seeking a better life. Times were sometimes prosperous, sometimes not. They lived with the same issues we do in the twenty-first century—immigration, substance abuse, and the emerging role of women in society. Take a look back and enjoy the characters:

Sallie—daughter, wife, and mother; a seamstress.

William—her husband, inspector of garbage collection.

Robert and Nathan—Civil War veterans.


Bessie—a rascal of sorts.

This was their time.
