CA. 1909: "THE TUNNEL" ON PARKWAY AVENUE AND SALLY LOGAN
It was a daunting engineering fete back in the first decade of the 20th century when Trenton and Mercer County officials tried to figure out a way to open up the western section of the city to the suburbs. Above is the answer to the problem: build a tunnel under the canal! I am including a note from regular visitor Sally Logan Gilman, who tells an interesting story about her experiences with the tunnel. Sally's note was original published a few years ago when this article was posted. Incidentally Sally, I also made the run from Mass. to Trenton on Friday nights back in 1955. However mine were from Fort Devens to Trenton; long before there was an I-95. We came down the Boston Post Road through all those beautiful New England towns.
