John Cleary, Harry Podmore, Bill Dwyer and Sally Lane are all my heroes who have enlightened all of us who are interested in our local historical heritage. The above is a digital copy of the "TRENTON IN BYGONE DAYS" series that ran so many years in the Trenton Sunday Times Advertiser. Most libraries disposed of their huge bound newspaper collection in favor of scratchy microfilm; long before computers and digital imaging was made possible. Back in the early 1980's I saw the potential for historic preservation of these chronicles of local history and managed to save a 100 year run of Trenton newspapers. Included in the collection are bound copies of the Trenton State Gazette, Trenton Evening Times, Daily True American and the Trenton Sunday Advertiser from the 1930's and 1940's. Historians agree that one of the best sources of local history lies in the daily Trenton newspaper as articles and photos increase in historical interest as time passes. How true!
