About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Dr. Martland

Harrison Stanford Martland (for whom the hospital was named) served as the Newark City Hospital Pathologist for 45 years and the Essex County Medical Examiner for 25 years until he retired in November 1953. He died on May 1st 1954 at the age of 71. A description of his papers on deposit at UMDNJ Archives is here.

It was late in '54

It must have been in the fall of 1954, when the new 1955 cars came out. The light-colored car in front of the hospital site is a 1955 Buick.

Not a hybrid among them

Quite a varied selection of Detroit big iron on display. Average mpg = 10.2, but who cared?

A bit of history

Martland evolved into the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ, and on July 1, 2013 will merge with Rutgers University, and become the Rutgers School of Biomedical and Health Sciences.
