Old Newark

Looking west from Broad Street

This is a photo of the Morris Canal looking west from about 100 feet west of Broad Street. The building on the right is L. S. Plaut Department Store. The first bridge is Halsey Street and you can see the inclined plane in the distance that went from Plane Street to Summit Street.
