Thomas Sears took numerous photographs of Glen Ridge, New Jersey, which, based on a variety of details, can be given a likely date span of 1905-1910 (for example, research on the license plate number and style on the automobile shown in NJ089045 indicates that it was likely produced between 1905 and 1910). Public buildings and sites such as the train station, churches, and schools figure prominently, although there are also many images of houses and residential areas. Some places, such as the Baldwin Garden (NJ091) and The Glen (NJ516), have sufficient images and positive identifications to warrant their inclusion in separate series. There are other subjects, however, for which there may be only one or two images or which remain unidentified, and these are grouped in the "Miscellaneous Sites" series. Identification of the sites and images was facilitated by Sally Meyer of the Glen Ridge Historical Society.
The folder includes a worksheet, identification information for the images, and additional information.
