CATHEDRAL GIRLS BUY A GRUMMAN AVENGER FOR THE WAR EFFORT!

I find this article to be incredibly interesting! Remember, during those dark and scary years of World War II, America was forced to convert hundreds of manufacturing facilities into war material. The fact that these girls raised enough money to acquire this donation to the war effort is unbelievable but true.

1789: GEORGE WASHINGTON AT THE MILL HILL TRIUMPHAN ARCH

1789: George Washington at the Assanpink "Arch." I am having an incredibly wonderful time doing "deep diving" into early Trenton. I put together the vignette combining 3 separate graphics from the Hamilton Library Local History Collection "MILL HILL" folder. Perhaps one of my viewers can explain the strange engraving of the bridge that shows a strange exit from the bridge. It looks like it could be a dirt street.

1904: JACKSON STREET LOOKING NORTH FROM MARKET

How I love these vintage photos! I have a little booklet from 1904 which illustrates a number of Trenton neighborhoods.  This graphic is one of them; a delightful view of the newly re-surfaced street.
