Description - Summit by Patricia E Meola

With a history dating back to 1664, Summit, New Jersey, has evolved from a pastoral town of farms and rolling hills to a populated suburb of Manhattan.In this original collection of images, author and local historian Patricia E. Meola takes readers on a journey into Summit s past. Witness the growth and change that have occurred in Summit since its incorporation in 1899 in this fascinating pictorial history. Through nearly 200 postcard images, Summitcelebrates a city known for its gracious, tree-lined streets, the reputation of its public and private schools, the activism of countless city volunteers, and its thriving opportunities for culture and adult education. In the early days of the community s development, many residents were seasonal (this attribute of the population changed as it became easier to live in the country and work in the city). Some of the postcards that were sent to friends and relations by early summer inhabitants have been reproduced in this book."
