1935: CHAMBERS STREET TOWARD CEDAR LANE?

This photo is unidentified in the R.C. Maxwell Collection. However, As I looked carefully, I thought that this was a view of Chambers Street in 1935. The moving force behind my speculation was the white church on the right side, still standing today. Repeat: This is speculation on my part and subject to correction by a more knowledgeable visitor.

Excellent, Tom! You're headed noth on Chambers towards Cedar Lane with the cross street being William St.
A few "new" trees are present in today's field of view. The buildings on the right have changed very little. Even the telephone poles are in the same spot.

Is that a Jersey Maid Ice Cream sign hanging on the building to the right? Blake

Tom - The little white church on the right side is the firwst home of Memorial Baptist Church. It began as a mission church from Calvary Baptist Church in Trenton. The church founders were meeting in people's homes in the Broad St Park area. The building became available when the Baptist Church in Windsor closed and was moved there in parts onto this site. The congregation decided to build in Hamilton in 1957. The current church is alive and well at the corner of S Broad St and Highland Ave in Yardville Heights. Thanks for publishing this picture of our old church and all the work you do to restore these old photos! Lakeside Girl
