Collection, 1850s-present, 25 linear feet

Summary:

Photographs of  Newark, New Jersey, which document Newark between the 1850s and the present.  The bulk of these images are ca. 1890-1940, although there are many street corner views from the 1960s.  The images documenting transportation and commercial architecture reveal the changes that have taken place in such main streets as Board and Market Streets since the end of  the 19th century.  Many photographs also document the construction of the Newark Airport, work at Port Newark, and other industrial work.  The collection includes standard size, oversized and double oversized  photographs, and prints.  Photographers include William Cone and others.   Subjects include Newark airport, apartments, several private houses, the Berg Collection of Newark street corners (over 2000 photographs of each side of various street corners in Newark in the 1960s -index available), business enterprises, churches, government buildings, Clark Thread Company, Deegan Tinsmithing Shop, Essex County Court House Buildings,  hospitals, Newark  industry including factories and the interiors of factories with men and women workers, public institutions, the library, Mutual Benefits Life Insurance Co., The New Jersey Historical Society, Park Place,  Port Newark,  ELCO Boat Company, Electric Company (PS &E Co.), railroad, trolleys and other transportation, restaurants, schools and colleges, street scenes, theaters, group portraits, and Works Progress Administration (WPA) project photographs.  Also includes separate index to 200 photographs taken of  Newark dwellings and businesses,  1900-1907.

Organized alphabetically by subject in standard size, oversized and double oversized.
