my town, 1947 style!

Our amazing next door neighbor, Reenie Raschke, the super talented photographer has lovingly chronicled our town in a black-and-white pictorial called “My Town Montclair“.

We saw her present slides and background from her book last night at our local indie bookstore. She passed around this gem of an original 60+ year old newspaper showing our downtown as it was!
