"Old friends are the best friends." Old friends from our school days are even better than best friends; they're next to being family relatives. Such is the case with Alice, my Hamilton High classmate from the class of 1951. 2013 is the year most of us will enter octogenarian status; aches. pains, and all. It seems like only yesterday when I met pretty Alice Schmidt when we were fellow 9th graders at Kuser Annex. Some months ago, Alice sent me these beautiful post card scans that have been quietly reposing in the "TRENTON-VIEWS OF" folder in the Hamilton Library Local History's digital collection. Don't miss the Mercer Hospital photo immediately above. Compare it with the HUGE complex over on Scotch Road and you will see how far the legendary facility has grown up.
