These R.C. Maxwell photos are showing up in proliferation on Facebook and most of them are dark and in need of tweaking in order to make a sunshiny day bright,and a cold and gloomy day dark. Here's still another R.C. Maxwell Hartman Collection which is being posted as I was instructed to da by Mr. Joshua Wright of the Hartman Archives with the link and the library "xxx" call number inserted on the bottom of the photo. The incredible clarity of the photo is typical of the R.C. Maxwell cameraman who has created a pictorial history of both Trenton and Atlantic City along with a few Lawrence, Hamilton and Hightstown photos as they were in years past. My guess is that the Maxwell camera man used an old "Graphlex" or perhaps a German "Rolliflex" camera in order to get such a detailed pristin photograph.
As to the photo's subject which in this case is the legendary Pete Lorenzo;s, many a political meeting was held over lunch at Pete's as were many industrial and commercial discussions lunches and dinners. Unfortunately Pete's is no longer with us, having been closed and dismantled many years ago.
