Thanks for this email, Diane. Downtown Trenton also had the State and the Stacy. I will leave it to my many old time Trentonians to fill in the info regarding the theaters. My wife Judy Britton worked at yards in the late 40's and early 50's in "Infants' Wear." Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you return often. Diane wrote:
I came across your web site and I thank you for it. It brought back a lot of wonderful memories.
I was raised in North Trenton, left in 1966 when I married and last August, 2011, I moved back to North Trenton, a mile from where I grew up. Unfortunately my old street has fallen to ruin, some of the houses are boarded up. I'm now on Ohio Avenue, a predominately Polish neighborhood. Never did I think I'd end up back "home."
I used to work at Yard's Department Store. I thought there were five movie theaters: The Lincoln: Mayfair: Capitol: Trent: and I can't remember the name of the fifth one. Do you happen to remember or were there just four? I remember a lot of the businesses in downtown Trenton from the late 50's to the early 70's.
I attempted to sign your guest book but I was unable to access it.
