Oxford Street Area1108 viewsThis is a photo (year unknown) of the Morris Canal and the Passaic River. Most likely taken at the end of Oxford Street. The Jackson Street Bridge is in the background. The pedestrian walkway on the left side over the canal was slightly west of Mott Street. The building in the center was Christman & Koops - Flagpoles, Spars & Derricks. Note the two mules that are pulling a barge (out of sight).

At Jackson Street Bridge852 viewsThis is a view from the Jackson Street Bridge looking west. The Newark Express Company on the left is the foot of Madison Street. The Gas Tank behind the smokestack is at the corner of Market, Congress & Prospect Street. If you look closely at the background through the fog/smog you can see the skyline for that year. The right side of the photo is Harrison. The bridge you see is the railroad bridge. The photo was taken before 1912.
