This is Sycamore Avenue in Shrewsbury in 1930. The Shrewsbury Post Office is in the middle of the street in background. The Presbyterian Church at Shrewsbury is on the left in foreground and Christ Church is on the left in the background. The sycamore, in the middle of the photograph, was planted by early colonists in the royal province of New Jersey and marked the Delaware Trail, used by Native Americans and later by George Washington’s troops on the Burlington Path. The tree no longer exists but a plaque about its history is located on the site. This photograph is courtesy of Dorn’s Classic Images.
