Radcliffe Street looking Northeast.

Left: the Coleman House, later called The Temperance House, followed by the Silbert House, As of 2016 it is an Italian Restaurant called Annabella’s. On the left, beyond the hotel and two small buildings, is the old Town Hall (note bell tower). This building sat in the middle of Market Street facing the Delaware River. It was built in 1831 and removed in 1938. The old bell is on the lawn of the present Municipal Building opened in 1927. Note the tracks for the electric trolley line in the middle of the street. This trolley line connected Philadelphia and Morrisville via Bristol between 1900 and 1932. Gasoline powered bus transportation replaced the trolley.
