Montgomery locals Oct. 19, 2016
Seventy-two years ago this month, Adam Print Shop opened for business on West Houston Avenue. According to Joan Wheal Blank’s “Around Montgomery Borough 1940-1990”, the original owner was John T. Adam, and his son John Adam, Jr. took it over and kept the shop operating until 2009. Currently the space has since been renamed “The Adam Room” and is now the home of the Montgomery Area Historical Society.
I remember as a child I often peeked in the large glass windows of Adam Print Shop to watch in fascination as they did their work. I will always remember the print shop with nostalgia because they would post the classroom assignments for the new school year near the end of summer. It was always exciting to find out who my teacher was going to be and see what other students would be in my class.
