Newton presents a portrait of the county seat of Sussex County, New Jersey during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With over 185 photographs, postcards, and other graphic images, we see Newton blossom from a small country village into a bustling commercial and industrial town. Among the never-before-published images in this book are the architect's original rendering for the Civil War monument in the county park, the interior of the working-man's bar at the Cochran House hotel, and Damian Broda at the wheel of an early Ford in his garage--the county's first automotive repair facility. View the interior of the Merriam shoe factory, as well as many of the town's commercial and residential streets. The vast majority of the images are drawn from author Wayne T. McCabe's monumental collection of postcards and photographs of Sussex County, collected over a period of nearly 20 years. Most of the photographs were made between 1860 and 1920 and reflect a time of growth and change in Newton's history. Additional images have been provided by Jan Gminder of the Nostalgia Shop in Newton, the Historical Society of Stillwater Township, and the archives of the New Jersey Herald.
