1948: I REPEAT: HOW I MISS "DOWNTOWN" TRENTON!
This delightful segmented/enlarged view of the intersection of State and Broad Streets in center city Trenton stirs bittersweet memories for me as nothing else could. That's not my favorite downtown Trenton police officer Chet Hughes in the photo, but I bet if Chet saw this photo he would know who that officer directing traffic is. Take a moment or two and see how many store fronts you remember; you will also get that warm, fuzzy feeling so familiar to those of us who recall Trenton's golden years. I would guess there isn't a single visitor to this site who remembers "downtown" Trenton who didn't get a frosty class of Nedick's famous orange beverage.
