Penns Grove and Carneys Point offers a rare glimpse back at life along the Delaware River. With some 200 postcards from the past, this book reveals the history of Penns Grove and Carneys Point. Once, the river teemed with shad and sturgeon; fishing, canning, and shipping thrived here; Penns Grove became known as "the Caviar Capital of the World." Tourists and visitors arrived--among them march king John Philip Sousa, sharpshooter Annie Oakley, actor W. C. Fields, and gangster Al Capone. After wartime demands brought workers to the DuPont Powder Plant in Carneys Point, the riverside resort became hometown to thousands. All the while, visitors and townsfolk alike shared their experiences on delightful postcards.

Author Biography

Local author Donna Federanko-Stout has been researching and writing about the history of her community since she was a girl and first heard writer and historian W. W. Summerill speak. Her passion for the past led to the creation of not only Penns Grove and Carneys Point but also the Historical Society of Penns Grove & Carneys Point, which she cofounded.
