1904 was indeed an important year in the history of Peterborough, highlighted by the grand opening of the Peterborough Lift Lock.  It was such a momentous time, in fact, that our full look at mid-May of that year will be delayed until tomorrow!

The full text of that invitation, in case you are having trouble viewing the image, reads as follows:

The Corporations of the Town and County of Peterborough
