Pamela Jackson of Mahwah saw one of our blog posts about the old days of Secaucus and wanted to share some family photos of the days when her ancestors lived in town.
“My Great Grandfather, John Himsel, had a pig farm off of Penhorn Road in Secaucus. I have amazing photos of what that area looked like before the Turnpike and the population expanded in that area (circa, 1920s).
“My Great Aunt told me that the Penhorn Creek was so clear that you could see the fish swimming close to the bottom at some distance from the shoreline.”
More pix follow.
Tomorrow: An old newspaper clipping about a two-headed pig in Secaucus.
