Cranford celebrates the 125th anniversary of its founding in 1996. To commemorate the event, two local historians, Robert Fridlington and Lawrence Fuhro, have joined forces to create a wonderful new history of the town. This book is a nostalgic look back at the town s roots, with over 200 fascinatingphotographs dating from 1871 to the 1940s. These images bring to life the town s rich heritage its Victorian downtown district, school daze, special events, and faces forgotten and familiar. We see Cranford s origins as a sleepy river village dependent on farming and milling, and its growth as a suburb from the late nineteenth century to the end of World War II. Many of these remarkable pictures have never before been seen by the public, and theauthors have uncovered images and stories longforgotten, such as the town s African-Americanbaseball teams and efforts to make Cranford the state capital."
