Traveling around New Jersey’s historical newspapers for late April into early May, some ads caught our eyes.
The first, from the April 29, 1870 West-Jersey Pioneer and advertises the latest in clothes washing technology!
This advertisement from the April 27, 1923 Perth Amboy Evening News shows a gentleman triumphantly celebrating the availability of the “Two Pants Suit.” We’re not sure what the “Congressional filibuster” reference is to, but we’re also not sure we want to know!
We had to investigate further when we saw the headline below in the April 30, 1894 Jersey City News. In the end, Miss Rebecca Hausche’s actions led the the discovery of a neighborhood thief!
