"History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future." 

- Robert Penn Warren

Ever walk down a street in Trenton and wonder what it looked like a century ago? Then & Now is an ongoing photo-history project that retakes a photograph from the same perspective as the original. It focuses on Downtown Trenton's historic businesses and often overlooked beautiful architecture. Every Friday, we release a new location, so check back soon!

Photos used in Then & Now are courtesy of:

R.C. Maxwell Collection at Duke University Libraries
