By the close of the nineteenth century, East Orange was a community of mansions, tree-lined streets, and undisturbed serenity. With the addition of luxury apartment buildings in the 1920s and the continued development of Main Street and Central Avenue, East Orange quickly became one of the largest and busiest cities in New Jersey. East Orange captures the tranquillity and innocence of the city at the turn of the century. Over two hundred photo-postcards brilliantly illustrate the evolution of East Orange between 1900 and 1960, while fact-filled captions convey the passion of the residents for their hometown.
