This photo and article from 1916 gives a nice view of Trenton's Mott School. The historic edifice has been the school of many notable Trentonians over the years, and continues today to educate South Trenton students. My friend, the late Leon "Lee" Buker gave me a photo copy of an 8-1/2 x 14 twelve page pamphlet entitled, "MOTT SCHOOL MEMORIES' which is filled with brief memories of many of the alumni who attended the school from its earliest years up to 1983 when the pamphlet was published. Unfortunately the interesting document does not lend itself to re-producing as a web graphic. I am working on bringing extracts of some of those memories, and will publish them in future blog posts.The building to the right in the photo is of the Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church which was also a South Trenton landmark.
