1907: Amusesment Park Construction

Trenton Sunday Times Advertiser, May 12, 1907

 Unfortunately, newspaper pictures in the beginning of the 20th century as the one above were not of good quality.  The caption indicates that it depicts the construction of the Casino Restaurant.  Written reports and photographs tell us that the Casino was in the Mansion pictured in the background.  That raises the question as to the identity of the structure being built.  If it remained a one story structure it may be the Arcade that existed in the Park (see picture below).  The thought that it might be a foundation for the roller coaster that existed in the general area has to be considered.  Without documention of the Park's layout, we can only speculate.
