1917: SPRINGTIME COMES TO MERCER COUNTY AND THE DELWARE VALLEY
This delightful catalog page from the Trenton Evening Times of April 11, 1917 brings back many familiar memories of tools that I remember very well from my younger years. The push mower with the steel wheels with horizontal treads, the very common high sided wooden wheel barrow, and in the photo I also see the roller that my buddy Don Slabicki and I so often used to roll the Kuser tennis court. The article indicates it was full of water which could be drained, but I seem to recall that the Kuser tennis court roller was oil filled. A fascinating page from an era when Hamilton was largely open farm land.
