1919: Pipe Band Appears

Trenton Evening Times, July 2, 1919

It is rare to find pictures of the hundreds of acts that performed at White City Park during its lifetime.  This picture, though typical of the poor quality of newspaper pictures published in the early 20th century, gives a visual dimension to the written word.  The phrase "combined volunteer fire department of Hamilton Square" should have read Hamilton Township.  This refers to the United Firemen of Hamilton Township as posted earlier.
