Newarks crystal-clear water attracted some thirty-five breweries, including P. Ballantine & Sons and Henslers. Frederick Law Olmsted developed Branch Brook Park, the first county park in the United States. Transportation for industrial and personal use was booming, with barges, ships, trains, and trolleys running continually. Called the City of Churches, Newark became known for the numerous houses of worship used by its residents. Educational institutions grew, paving the way for the many schools and colleges in existence today. Newark: The Golden Age explores New Jerseys largest city through rare vintage postcard views that will captivate residents and visitors alike.
