Red Bank is a riverfront town that used its location on the water to grow rapidly between the 1830s and 1850s. The coming of the railroad in the 1860s accelerated the development of this thriving community and today the waterfront and business district continue to prosper and Red Bank itself remains a proud and tight-knit community. Including many rare and previously unpublished photographs, with samples of the work of early Red Bank photographers Charles Foxwell and Andrew Coleman, this fascinating visual history is a tribute—a tribute to the people who built Red Bank into the diverse and dynamic community that it is today and to the photographers who captured moments in time with their lenses so that we might better understand our past.

Monmouth historian Randall Gabrielan has collected an intriguing range of old photographs of the area, taking us through a century of change from the 1870s to the 1970s. The photographs capture buildings familiar and forgotten, places unchanged and transformed beyond recognition, and events catastrophic and celebratory.
