Just look at those prices! Even before the fire sale at Haveson's, the "Regular" prices shown are a livid example of how tough the times were back during the Great Depression. Imagine paying $5.95 for an overcoat, or a suit marked down from $15 to $20 for the amazing price of $4.95! This was one of the years when many citizens were unable to keep their homes, had no work, and some were even selling apples on the street corners of American cities.The chopper view of the neighborhood and the location of the Haveson store is marked in the graphic. The most beautiful building in Trenton during that era was the furniture store of J.B. Van Sciver. Judy and I had a rock maple dining set from that quality furniture store that lasted for many years.
The building still stands today. Surprisingly, they didn't demolish it with the wreckers' ball!
