CNJ Newark and New York Branch Pictures?

Postby sickskillz » Tue Mar 13, 2012 1:11 pm

I've been researching the Newark and New York Branch of the CNJ for quite some time, however I've had a huge amount of difficulty finding pictures of this route running through Ironbound in Newark, NJ.

The closest I have come to having some sort of image of how this all looked, is an aerial view from historic aerials:

It gives me a good overhead view of the line and where it ran through, however I just still can't imagine the views of Newark back then when this line was up and running through the heart of Ironbound.

Would anyone be able to provide me with a link for a good place to search or possibly provide some pictures if possible? I am planning on going to the Newark Public Library to see if they may have any pictures other than that of the CRRNJ station itself. Any help is appreciated!

Thank you.
