Town Lane can be seen running diagonally into the bottom right hand corner. Moyer Farm is on the right hand side in the center. No houses have been built on Milford Street beyond Eighth. The covered bridge spans the Juniata River in line with Milford Street. The southern turn of the race track is visible at the left side. Running down Milford Street are the tracks of the Tuscarora Valley "TV" Railroad that branch off to the left about 3rd Street.

This picture shows an aerial view of Port Royal taken on September 25, 1938. You can see that there are no houses on Milford Street beyond Eighth Street. In fact most of the northern side of Milford Street remains undeveloped. Also, Town Lane has been only partially developed. The Moyer and Groninger Farms are still to be developed.

This photo was taken May 8, 1957. The southern side of Milford has been developed beyond Eighth Street but not the northern side. The Moyer Farm still remains undeveloped. The Point Service Station remains at the western end of Market Street and the extension of the road from Market to the Old Port Bridge still hasn't occurred.

This photo of Port Royal was taken in 1970. Houses have begun to appear on the northern side of Milford Street beyond Eighth Street. The new Tuscarora Valley Elementary School is visible at the top of Eighth Street opposite the Fair Grounds. Most of Town Lane has been developed. And the road linking Market Street with the Old Port Bridge is in place.

Aerial View from the East. It appears that the fair may be in session. Since Route 75 has been modified the photo was taken after 1967 (when Route 75) was rerouted and by 1973 (when the high school building was dismantled).

This view shows how Port Royal is surrounded by water. The Tuscarora Creek is clearly visible on the left and bottom of the photo, Just a small portion of the Juniata River can be seen where the Creek flows into the River at the bottom right of the photo.
