OLD RAHWAY PHOTOS SOUGHT

RAHWAY, NJ – The Merchants and Drovers Tavern Association is working on a companion volume to the 1997 book Images of the Past: A Rahway Album.  Like the first book, the new volume will include hundreds of old photos of Rahway.  Many of these photos will come from the Association’s collection and have never before been published.

Are any old photos of Rahway people, places or events reposing, long forgotten, in a drawer or old trunk at your house?  If so, would you be willing to let Rahway historians publish them in the upcoming book?  The actual photograph will not have to be sent to the publisher, so the original will be back in your possession in a few days.

Although the Association is always interested in photos from the 19th century, photos of the 20th century are now particularly desirable, especially those from the 1920s through the 1960s.  Even photos of the 1976 Bicentennial may be of interest.

If you have photos that you would like to share, please contact Alex and Robin Shipley at (732) 827-7573.  For more information, please contact Linda McTeague at (908) 204-1896.
