New Jersey’s Major Cities Looked So Different In The 1910s. Trenton Especially.

As the new year approaches, many of us look back and reflect. Why not look back a little further? Say… a century ago. Life in New Jersey was very different a hundred years ago – take a peek into our past through these photos taken within a decade of 1910.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
