There are visitors to this website who are here basically for the nostalgic entries. On the other hand there are those of us who are considered "hard core" historians who love to read about the emerging growth of the city of Trenton and the surrounding communities. Even though the latter group is in the minority, the Hamilton Township Public Library Local History Collection will continue to feature in depth articles and photos that are of historic value. Such is the case with the article above. Unfortunately, much like those frustrating old family photographs that came through the years with no written identification on them, so too are there articles that were in the leaves of old scrapbooks. Never pasted in and never identified as to the date. Thus it is with the article above. From what I can piece together, this article can safely be attributed to the 1880's, and close to the late 1880's.
