1927: JOE'S TIRE SHOP ON THE "OLD" SOUTH WARREN STREET
Today it's known as the "New South Warren Street." A few decades ago, Trenton's historic South Warren Street was eliminated to make room for the many re-development projects in South Trenton. A check of a "BING" map will show that the intersection of what was South Warren and Factory Street is now where the Trenton Freeway approaches the bridge over the Delaware. When I was a young man, South Warren Street was alive with businesses; in my case the location of Tilden Brakes, and the Penn-Jersey auto supply store where I was a regular customer during my "jalopy" years as a teenager.
