By the close of the nineteenth century, East Orange was a community of mansions, tree-lined streets, and undisturbed serenity. With the addition of luxury apartment buildings in the 1920s and the continued development of Main Street and Central Avenue, East Orange quickly became one of the largest and busiest cities in New Jersey. East Orange captures the tranquillity and innocence of the city at the turn of the century. Over two hundred photo-postcards brilliantly illustrate the evolution of East Orange between 1900 and 1960, while fact-filled captions convey the passion of the residents for their hometown.

From the 1890s through the 1920s, the postcard was an extraordinarily popular means of communication, and many of the postcards produced during this "golden age" can today be considered works of art. Postcard photographers traveled the length and breadth of the nation snapping photographs of busy street scenes, documenting local landmarks, and assembling crowds of local children only too happy to pose for a picture. These images, printed as postcards and sold in general stores across the country, survive as telling reminders of an important era in America's history. This fascinating new history of Orange, New Jersey, showcases more than two hundred of the best vintage postcards available.

Santa Ana was one of the earliest incorporated cities, and became the county seat in 1889.
