expansive farm property shown in this exquisite engraving from the year 1875 which I find was at the foot of today's Perrine Avenue in Trenton. Little wonder that it was known far and wide back in the 19th century as "Taylor Ham." I have also learned that It was John Taylor who invented "pork roll in a bag.;" so popular in modern times.
very interesting and little known fact: Back in the 19th century, Sand
Hills (today's Yardville) was a major pork shipping center receiving the
products from neighboring pork farmers and sending them north or south
from the Sand Hills railroad depot.
