Memorial park in #wharton #nj #newjersey this #ww2 memorial is on the other side of the park from the ww1 memorial. I particularly liked the backdrop of the relatively large grand home behind the park. The park has a 37mm antitank gun which are very common surplus weapons seen in many towns. One reason is because the 37mm really was not effective against German armor in WW2. They made a bunch, they were marginally useful and the result is they were readily available as surplus memorial props. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2xLwGF1

Historically, #nj industrial development was rooted in iron. The iron industry declined in the latter half of the 19th century. Still the rivers were able to power mills and diversification brought a major influx of silk mills to the area. This brick silk mill was built by Ross and Baker around 1907 on the former site of the Washington Forge in #wharton #newjersey — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2Iq820U

Today many area town museums are open to the public, all on the same day. Visiting the #pequannock township museum in #pomptonplains #nj #newjersey I noted the Beames Dairy sign. Interestingly one can note the ‘Grade A’ scratched out of the sign. Done because he no longer sold Grade A milk. Of course that does make me wonder what Grade 'B’ milk is. — view on Instagram https://ift.tt/2pvANRp
