From the arrival of the Morris Canal in 1830 through the end of World War II, Boonton, New Jersey was a thriving industrial town with goods and people to transport throughout the state. The railroad arrived in 1867, expanding eastward in 1870 to reach Paterson, Newark, and New York. With additional technological advancements came trolleys, buses, and trucks, which still support Boonton's transportation network today. This all black & white book takes readers on a journey from the 1870s through the 1960s with a rare glimpse into Boonton's past.
