I do remember the corner clock from Trenton Junior College and School of Industrial Arts, in (I'm thinking) 1953. As a second grader I was given a "scholarship" to study on Saturdays with kids my age, along with many that were much older. We had classes up on the fifth floor of this and over a block or so on Capitol Street where there were some very good ceramics and sculpture studios.
How did a second grader get here from South Clinton Ave? Either walk (by yorself) or or take the Trenton Transit.

SJ, thanks to Sally Lane we still have the Kelsey to admire since the "Town Fathers" intended to demolish it a few years back. I too took ceramics on Capitol Street and art in the Kelsey upper floor that had a wonderful skylight. In the 1950's and 60's knowing most of the bus drivers by and I can even remember one summer day making a game of seeing how many places we could ride on bus transfer slips.
HI TOM....THAT'S WHAT WAS GOING ON IN TRENTON A YEAR AFTER I WAS BORN. I NEVER REALIZED I WOULD BE DELIVERING MAIL IN THAT AREA FOR THREE YEARS. I WORKED THAT PART OF W. STATE ST. FROM WILLOW TO CALHOUND IN THE 1950'S WHEN THOSE PEOPLE GOT THREE DELIVERIES A DAY. THOSE DOCTORS ON W. STATE ALL GOT MANY SAMPLES THAT DROVE ME NUTS. I REALLY ENJOYED THE TOUGH WORK OF SERVING THOSE PATRONS INCLUDING ALL THE POLITICIANS. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL.
