Old Brunswick (“The town between the tracks”) - Kamberger's Opera House was the tall building on the south side of the tracks. Also pictured is the original Victor Kaplon department store and the City Hotel. The mortar and pestle in the lower right corner of the photo is the sign for the W.H. Gannon pharmacy that occupied part of the Gross Building at the foot of Maryland Avenue.
According to Reuben Moss in an earlier post we made of this photo:
"Not all buildings were torn down during the 1906 expansion, but knowing it was coming they slowly were vacated and removed one by one. I think this might be where the concept of 'The town between the tracks' came from. As new residents moved in to re-double the population once the second half of the yard was built, they saw the remaining buildings between the tracks.
It's really hard to tell, the giveaway would be the other set of tracks if the buildings didn't block the view of that. I can't tell if that lighter spot is the YMCA visible in the distance on the left, if it is that would make it post 1907. I think the station was moved to its present location from 7th Avenue around 1910, but I might be wrong about that."
