  1. I am thrilled to see the addition here of my Grandmother Esther's work force picture at the Cigar Factory in Perth Amboy. To think it has been in a box for so long and now you bring them all to life again. Thanks Fran Tripka (:^)

  2. Thanks! We are always looking for more pictures and stories of the past and present residents of Perth Amboy.
