The year is 1939. Camden is located in South Jersey, near Trenton, and across the Delaware River from Philadelphia. Once upon a time in America – Camden, New Jersey was a booming manufacturing hub. Walt Whitman came from Camden, and for many decades, RCA Victor was located there – turning out their famous Victor Talking Machines – and later manufacturing radios, and televisions. Nearby, Campbell’s turned out its many varieties of soup. The city of 120,000 boasted the largest shipyard in the world (New York Shipbuilding) – and America’s first drive-in movie. Today’s colorized image is of that Camden, New Jersey – a city with a bright future and endless possibilities – 75 years ago.
