Perth Amboy's 275th Anniversary

The year 1958/59.
Perth Amboy was celebrating it's 275th Anniversary. 
Smith Street was closed off  for the celebration. 
Thanks to Mike Mitrosky, a Perth Amboy Native
who now lives in California for the color photos. 
Ace Drugs, Coney Island and Peoples.

This picture was found on another website.  I believe they got it 
from another Perth Amboy site.  If this photo belongs to you
please comment so I can give you credit for the picture.

If anyone has any photos or stories of Perth Amboy's 275th 
Anniversary, please let Bill or myself know.
