Overview


Picture this: wooden piers, grand hotels, and swimmers of all ages frolicking in the surf. That was Atlantic City--then. Through the years, the boardwalk has changed, but today the casinos still draw millions of visitors each year. Now try to imagine the George Washington Bridge connecting New Jersey to New York City as it did in the 1930s. Or the vast miles of highway that make up the New Jersey Turnpike in the 1950s. Can’t picture it? With New Jersey Then and Now, time turns back right before your eyes!

This fascinating photo book shows how New Jersey--from the sprawling campuses of Princeton and Rutgers Universities to the shores of Cape May--has grown and changed over the years. From Einstein’s home to the spot where the Hindenberg tragically landed to Ellis Island, the state’s newest addition, New Jersey Then and Now offers a complete look at the past and present of the Garden State!
