HI all, as a kid I lived in Cupsaw Lake, then Fredon, then Blairstown, moved to upstate NY in 1981 and I love it here, I am alway telling people how nice NJ really is if they would see more of it than Newark Airport has to offer, I have never been from Joisey, I have always been from New Jersey I think you do your state a misjustice if you live in a rural part of NJ and tell people that your from Joisey, Just like now, I'm from upstate NY " Cooperstown " :)

I lived in Alpha, NJ in the house I was born in until I graduated from college. We heated with Anthracite coal in a hand fired boiler. As you NJ residents know there are two bridges between Phillisburg, NJ and Easton, PA. One's a toll bridge one's is not. Our Easton coal supplier, named Union Coal Company, delivered in a high lift truck. A single truck load was enough for a season. One time coal was delivered in two half loads, in two trucks. Why? The toll on the bridge was raised from 10 to 25 cents. So they brought coal in two trucks so they could get under the weight limit on the free bridge. I sort of remember coal was $8 a ton. I also remember you could get coal carried in for 50 cents at ton extra. My parents only did that once. The coal would be bagged at the curb and carried down the cellar steps. Different times for sure. While Alpha has changed over the past decades the change has been minimal compared to where I now live in Maryland. Alpha finally got a traffic light, a sign of progress. :-)

I loved Ringwood, when I was growing up in the 1960s what is now Skylands was know as Shelton college [ a couple square miles ] and had been abondon or went broke and we used it as our personal playground to camp and fish and all the other stuff that a 10 or 12 year old likes to do, who would belive today that my mom and dad would let a bunch of ten year olds go out by themself and go a mile or 2 into the woods to camp for a day or two, but then again we were Boy Scouts :roll: I lived on Whaleback terrace 2nd house on the left :)

If memory serves me, his place was either on the corner of 521 and Main St, or just a little down from the corner on 521. His pool house was part of the garage and game room that had the T's in it.... I just did a quick look with Google Maps, and don't seem to spot it, but the big field is still there.

That was Condit Ford, was sold to World Auto Group, the Ford dealer is gone, the Toyota agency (formerly farther up Rt. 206) is in that building now.

on the corner of 521 and Main St, or just a little down from the corner on 521.


Next to the Stillwater Mill?

Mill still there? I am not really sure seems such a long time ago as to the exact location to his place, but the memory of the ride in the T is much more vivid... lol But I think it was just below the "A" on 521

The building just below the "A" is the Lakeland bank (formerly Newton Trust). It's on the corner of the intersection across from the church. The mill is further down Main St. by the river.

Welcome to the forum Waterman++ and fellow NJer! Beautiful place it is, tucked just above Pine Hollow on the Muskie at the foot of the hill. Did they take the dam out yet?

Ah, if only we had a few of those beauties in your picture at this time of the year :)
