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.

Street Corner Newark

Picture above is the Northwest corner of 677 Broad St, Newark, N.J. corner of W. Park, Pl. Different building there now.


This was about 17 years before I was born (1947). I lived in Newark until I was 27 and may have passed this candy store/soda fountain many times. I wish I could see what the intersection was, so I could place it more accurately. It may be the one at Broad and Market Streets. That would put it in the center of downtown Newark.

Rare shades of human hair a specialty!

This is a very interesting photo, for the hair shop alone. Those are pretty classy cabs! I wonder what it cost to ride in the back one?
