Images of America: Bayonne (Images of America Series)by Kathleen M. Middleton
Collected in this intriguing visual history are over two hundred photographs which bring to life the rich and diverse history of Bayonne, New Jersey, from 1860 to 1940. Bayonne has made a number of significant contributions to America culture: from the country's first "rock band" and its first independent movie studio, to its first air-mail delivery and fast-food restaurants. This visual history brings these little-known contributions to light while also focusing on the everyday lives of the people of Bayonne.
Kathleen Middleton has collected photographs from a variety of private and archival sources to create a wonderful tribute to the people of Bayonne and to the photographers who froze images for posterity. It will appeal both to those interested in local history, and to those who simply enjoy a nostaligic trip down memory lane.
