Camden, NJ is located across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, PA, and was at one time a busy industrial city with a large population of mostly European immigrants who worked in the shops and factories located there. After World War II many of the factories closed, the population began to fall, and since then the City has been down-on-its-luck; today due to crime and pollution it is one of the most dangerous cities in the US.
This early-1950s photograph courtesy of contributor Benjamin Ames shows a busy three lane one-way street filled with both pre and post-war automobiles. The oldest cars in the scene date back to the 1930s and the newest appears to be the early-1950s Mercury two door sedan on the right in the center lane.
