South Side of Main St Between Steuben St and Mitchell Place, Oct 1964




Above: The building in this photo had been built in 1924 as The Strand Building and the Strand Theater opened in 1925. Sometime in the late 1930's or early 1940's it became The Beacon.

All of these photos were taken by Dr. Sam Berg in October, 1964 and document this historic neighborhood shortly before it was bulldozed to make way for I-280. The photos are from the Berg Collection and are courtesy of the Newark Public Library. The north side of Main St is here in another post.
