THE SEARCH FOR QUINTIN'S RACE TRACK
Few people associate Edward Boyd with Villa Park. In my computer database I have a photo of him when he was very active on the Boyd Farm in the area Nottingham Way and the old De Laval plant. Boyd was one of the earlier persons involved with Henry N. Smith's old Fashion Stud Farm which was located where the old N.J. State Fair was located. Mr. Boyd sheds some hitherto unknown information on the location of the Quintin track in the short extract above. Until I am proven wrong, I speculate that the track was located between Quinton and Melrose Avenues from Hamilton Avenue to Jefferson Street (Today's Liberty Street.) Boyd lived at 837 Hamilton Avenue.
