1921: "ROSELAND"

Today, the imposing J.B.Van Sciver building on South Broad Street occupies the site of the late, great Roseland dance palace.One can easily have a mental visualization of a 1920's "Flapper" girl on the arm of a boy as they enter for and evening of dancing. Perhaps the young man has a flask of illegal hootch in his breast pocket after paying a fast visit to one of the many local Trenton speakeasies in the area.
