Description

Perth Amboy, New Jersey-purchased from Native Americans by European settlers in 1651-began its life as a colonial seaport, becoming the tidewater terminus of the Lehigh Valley Railroad in 1876. In the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the city developed into an industrial giant, with over one hundred factories supporting the local economy. In Perth Amboy, Joan Seguine-LeVine explores the many dimensions of her hometown during its industrial era. The city's people, architecture, waterfront, and various industries of yesteryear are uncovered in vivid detail through over two hundred vintage photographs accompanied by thoughtful and comprehensive captions. Perth Amboy's historical significance is revealed, and many lifetime residents of the city will be surprised to learn how many national precedents were set in this harbor community.
