About This Item

New Jersey, 1930. Unbound. Near Fine. A collection of 217 photographs from PSEG (Public Service Enterprise Group) printed in the 1930s measuring between 5" x 7" to 8" x 10", most with captions. All photos about near fine with some original envelopes and negatives. PSEG was formed in 1903 after the merger of numerous smaller energy companies and firms throughout New Jersey. These prints, created in the 1930s, are taken from a variety of sources from the early days of the company and its sister companies starting in the late-1800s to promote the new face of the New Jersey power company. They show towns and companies throughout New Jersey, some after natural disasters, roads, buildings, public transportation, and company baseball games. Companies shown are the Newark Gaslight Company founded in 1845, United Electric Company of New Jersey, and Citizens Gaslight Company founded in 1870, these and numerous other branches of small New Jersey area power companies combined to form what is now PSEG. One photo of a group of men taking the field in baseball uniforms is captioned, "first field day meet of the P.S. Railway May 20, 1913 - Hilton Oval." Another photos shows downed power lines and reads, "Elizabeth - E. Grand St. and Jefferson Ave. Pole line result of storm March 1, 1914." The same storm is captured in a photo from Plainfield showing "P.S.E. wires in good shape," while "Western Union Line down." A photo depicting a horse drawn car that reads "Belleville & Cemetery" on the side is captioned, "driver - Mr. James J. Noonan 1884 - Jimie had more claim to fame than merely as chauffeur of the deluxe equipage he was the backstop for the old Woodstock's baseball team and a hero to all the kids of the Woodside section and Belleville." An extensive collection of photographs depicting the first few decades of the 20th Century in New Jersey and the early days of PSEG.
