I have always had a "soft spot" for old advertising, whether for old automobiles or merchants who once set up shop in our local area. The above vignette is a representation of just a few of the downtown establishments that were popular back then. Convery's Furniture survived until the 1960's when rioters burned the town down and looted many Trenton stores.Note: I have not been able to establish the exact location of DeCou's building lots. I do know that it was within the boundary of South Broad Street, Chambers, and South Clinton Avenue. The ad also includes Hamilton Street which was probably re-named. I don't know which area street was once Hamilton Street. Time will tell.
