Viewing the following photos is kind of like entering a time machine, you can almost imagine what life was like. Do you think things were simpler, or more of a struggle?

Do you recognize any of these places? Are you surprised by what has changed or remained the same? Please share your vintage New Jersey photos on the Only In New Jersey Facebook page.
