The date is early 1938. The photo shows Gillis in ... See Morea suit and tie with lots of neighborhood kids. The main feature is "The Badman of Brimstone" with Wallace Beery. Probably an April 1938 date. (photo courtesy of Dennis Murray/Facebook)

A Feature News Service release from 1962 - "A 'Tree full of Christmas Presents" is one of six uniquely decorated trees admired by Gretchen and Elizabeth, twin seven-year-olds, and their mother, Mrs. J.P. Zeigler, while shopping at The Mall at Short Hills. The 12-foot trees were decorated by Cecilia Staples, noted designer. Each represents Christmas past, present or future.

In addition to the steam and diesel powered trains, one can see electric MU 'wickerliners' in the train yard. Notice the old station bridge and low platforms, which disappeared in the late-80's renovation of the station.

Edgar St runs from Morris Ave and dead ends into the High School. The buildings at the far right are on the Kent Place school property across Morris Ave. (photo courtesy of Gary Hudkins/Facebook) 19 of 22 Twister! 20 of 22 Mood Ring
