Any old time "Wilburites" out there? This graphic shows the young boys who served the Wilbur neighborhood back in the mid 1930's and during the Great Depression. The building shown in the photo is long gone, having been replaced by the Garfield Park, just off East State Street in the city of Trenton.
HI TOM...I RECALL SELLING THE TIMES FOR 2 CENTS IN 1930. WE PAID 1 CENT AND SOLD IT FOR 2. I STOOD ON THE CORNER OF E. STATE AND MONTGOMERY AND USUALLY SOLD 10 PAPERS FOR A PROFIT OF 10 CENTS. MANY PEOPLE, I RECALL, WOULD GIVE YOU A NICKEL AND SAY KEEP THE CHANGE, THAT WAS GREAT. REGARDS,
