More old Hoboken pix!

11/19/2009:

The way Hoboken was…

Back in September, former resident Al Ferriulo provided some awesome exclusive old photographs of Hoboken “back in the day.” He’s back today with two more interesting shots!

Thanks again, Al!

Firehouse still there!

“Here’s a shot of firemen posing in front of the downtown firehouse. You can see the old trolleys in the background. Not certain of the exact age, but believe it’s circa 1920’s.”

Over 100 years ago!

“This was taken in the 1890’s – in the area where the bus depot is, looking out in a northwesterly direction.”

a list of names on the photo’s would be greatly appreciate, my grandfather was captain and have a pic with him on the firetruck with the horse, unfortunately two fire engines crashed at newark at the time and we wasn’t around very long after that,
as far as the museum they suck, i found old coins commerating over 100 yrs in hoboken and thought i would give them back to the city could you believe they were not interested, i explained that my great uncle is named after the st. there “mcfeely’s”
weren’t interested so hopped on the train and the city of new york gave me 2500 for each coin, too elitist for hoboken not for n.y. anyway cash in my pocket

Hey Molly my great great great uncle was Bernard Mc Feely and my great grandparents were Henry Cordes, Fireman, and Mary Mc Feely, daughter of James and Mary Mcfeely of Mc Feely Contracting Company. My grandpa, John Cordes used to take me to Hoboken when I was little. I live in California now and hope to visit Hoboken again in the future. Would love to hear anything you can tell me about the Mcfeely’s and the history of Hoboken.

I’m glad you guys liked the photos. In response to some comments; I don’t have any of the names of the firemen in the photo; I received a copy of that shot from a fireman and I am not aware of whether or not it is in the Hoboken museum. The other photo is looking at River street. I got that photo in a private sale.

the people at the Museum do research? THE PEOPLE at the Museum STEAL research!
Thieves, plagiarist and frauds. They messed up the baseball history also. GOVERNOR FLORIO (is he still alive) signed our BASEBALL History into LAW with proof from me.
READ THE STONE, it says MATCH game, ask me how that WORD got the LAW passed
and Cooperstown had to apologize and admit that HOBOKEN is the BIRTHPLACE of BASEBALL…Found the original papers at STEVENS with pictures of the teams and the
ORIGINAL RULEBOOK that made HOBOKEN FAMOUS…sent it to GOVERNOR FLORIO
who verified MATCH games and put it into LAW…..[quote comment=”179646″]new hoboken right but the people of the museum do research..they didnt live it…big difference…take it were it comes from. all in all its good. In response to new2hoboken who said:[/quote]
