Like a cherished old family album, this collection of more than two hundred fascinating photographs of Irvington brings to life people, places, and events of a bygone era. Although the Irvington depicted here--from the time of the Civil War to the 1970s--has changed significantly, its memory remains fresh in the minds of past and present residents alike. Culled from the extensive collections of the Irvington Public Library and Irvington Historical Society, this superb assemblage of images will stimulate many memories. Alan A. Siegel takes us on a delightful journey, starting when Irvington was a tiny village known as Camptown, to the twentieth century when Irvington was transformed almost overnight into a busy industrial and residential suburb of Newark. Shown too are the vital contributions made by successive waves of immigrants who flooded into Irvington during the first half of the twentieth century.
