Ramsey, NJ – Then & Now Video

Filed in Video by on October 31, 2011 5 Comments • views: 6738

This project shows Ramsey, NJ as it was some 100+ years ago and those same locations today. This collaborative effort depended on: photographs originally taken by Paul and Emily Simpson of locations around town, scanning the corresponding older photographs in the Historical Association library, and combining it all with a little production help from Rita Kennedy. The result is the short documentary you see below.

Enjoy, Daniel Kennedy.

    This was awesome! Keep up the great work! Super cool to see the roots of what became a great town! Hopefully people reach out with more old picture to juxtapose with new ones!

    I am a member of St. John’s episcopal church in Ramsey and I would like someone to tell me if this church is named after ST. John the apostle or St. John the Baptist. It is very important to get this information correct as I am about to add a piece of permanent art to the church and I would like it to depict which ever is the correct saint.

    Thank you.

    My father was a Ramsey historian. He had many postcards of “old time” Ramsey, and published many of them in the Dater’s old “Home and Store News”
