Product Overview

The city of Bridgeton, New Jersey''s largest historic
district, was one of the state''s leading commercial and industrial centers during the Victorian era. In this vibrant and exciting photographic history, local author Bill Chestnut brings to life the city''s past from the advent of photography through the 1970s. Little-known historical facts about public buildings, recreational and cultural centers, schools, and churches are explored in the informative captions that accompany the over two hundred images in this collection. Memorable moments and events from the years gone by are illustrated in vivid detail, including the legendary Flood of 1934 that left the town without a span over the Cohansey River. Many scenes from Bridgeton''s neighborhoods and neighboring communities reveal what life was like in the past of this old county town.
