By the time this map was produced, the town was coming off a post-World War II manufacturing boom resulting in a larger population. As of 2016, population levels have cooled to approximately the same amount as in the 1950 census. Pottstown is also the birthplace of musician Daryl Hall of Hall & Oates.
