The New York Daily Graphic did a story on Perth Amboy,NJ on Friday, May 28th. 1875
Back in the day articles were thousands of words and very descriptive.
The Article speaks of Perth Amboy as a Summer Resort with rooms available at the
Packer Hotel or The Brighton.
Also the Article takes you back when Perth Amboy was known as a
Fishing and Shell Fish Center and even mentions South Jersey's
Cranberry and Grape Crops and how Perth Amboy plays into it!
This is PART 1 with more to come......
