Photos Of Jersey City in the 1940s and 1950s

 Pulaski Skyway

 Baldwin Avenue where the State Highway 139 viaduct ends
 Industrial street scene from Mercer St looking west from under the National Docks Branch of the Lehigh Valley Railroad trestle with gleaming cars and old brick factories.
 The original two-way traffic viaduct to the Holland Tunnel with the Seaboard Terminal building and lots of 1940s cars on their way to Manhattan.
 New viaduct for westbound traffic from the Holland Tunnel with 1950s neon signs for Newark, Philadelphia and Hudson Boulevard.
 Large industrial metallic tanks of soap and perfuming chemicals dominated the intersection of Essex and Hudson Streets. The Colgate Plant had its own rail system and a Southern box car is visible on the right.
Hanging out in the neighborhood, 1946 style. Johnston Avenue looking east toward the Central Railroad of New Jersey train yards in the distance. 
 1930s cars and 1940s cars zip along the Pulaski Skyway surrounded by factories, smokestacks and oil tanks. The Empire State Building can be vaguely seen in the middle left distance.
 Mill Road with an entrance to the Mercer Viaduct at bottom right.
Exchange Place looking to Hudson River. Pennsylvania Railroad offices in building with rounded roof. Hudson Tube (PATH) entrance behind it in little white building on left. The ferry terminal to Manhattan is straight ahead.
