Elizabeth, New Jersey, the first state capital and the birthplace of Princeton University, was founded in 1665. This illustrious city was extremely influential during the Revolutionary and Colonial periods, and was home to numerous distinguished political and military figures. Over time, Elizabeth developed into an important industrial and economic center, welcoming the Singer Manufacturing Company in 1873 and becoming a recognized leader in automobile manufacturing long before Detroit. The culturally diverse city came to serve also as a crossroads for many commuting to jobs in Newark and in New York City. With Elizabeth, authors Jean-Rae Turner and Richard Koles have assembled a remarkable collection of vintage photographs of the city, documenting its history from 1665 to 1965.
