Thanks to Mr. Tom Tighue for posting this view of downtown Trenton as it looked during the golden years. The photo is from the Wendy Nardi's TRENTONIANA collection at the Trenton Free Public Library. I had completely forgotten about that hanging decoration so prominent in this photo. What memories this photo brings back to me. Over the years, I have written countless "The Way We Were" columns recalling Christmas shopping trips to Trenton. A trip to Public Service to pay our phone bill, the guy with the hand cranked adding machine pulling the crank and handing Mom Glover the receipt, and then down to Goldberg's which was little Tommy Glover's idea of heaven on earth. A Tom Mix six gun with a bejeweled holster, an A.C. Gilbert Chemistry set, a raft of beautiful "Tootsie Toys," and A.C. Gilbert Erector set, not to mention an A.C. Gilbert "American Flyer" train set. Ahh....the memories are eternal!
