The photographic history series “A Penny A View” started in 1993 with the book about Lafayette Township in Sussex County. The concept for this series is to use the massive postcard collection that one of the authors has assembled as the basis for depicting what communities and subjects looked like from 1900 to 1950.
Each book is about a municipality or a subject in Sussex County and is formatted to provide a tour of that community. The images are set up in a sequence that provides the reader with a logical go from one image to another, as if it were a walking or driving tour.
